Are Favorites considered 'User Data"

This is not a problem, just a question. Are the IE Favorites conidered as User data. E.g. when you set back to a previous restore point, does that also reset the Favorites or do they stay untouched.

Hello Wolfgang,

Yep, Favorites is considered to be user data since it's saved in the "C:\Uses\(user-name)\Favorites" user folder. They should not be affected by a restore point.
