Windows 7: Deleted Favorite or Not?

Did you relocate your Favorites folder to a different partition/location?

If so, do you have two Favorites Folder in your user profile links? That might be the reason why the links have been reappearing again as it's replicated in two folders. Delete the old folder.

No old favorites folder on my system. And the links don't reappear they dissapear along with my sign in cookies radomly for no reason at all. This is a known problem with older versions of Explorer. They talk about it here but there is no fix for the new Explorer as yet. https://connect.microsoft.com/IE/fee...dbackID=389663

There's probably a bug in IE8. The only thing I don't understand is why it's only happening to me!

Hi Tom,

As mentioned by Barman58, verify the permission of your favorites folder.
Validating relocated Favorites folder permissions are a bit trickier than the norm

open a command prompt then type
icacls <Favorites Path>
check if you have the following line Mandatory Label\Low Mandatory Level: (OI)(CI)(NW)

If you don't have that line or it's incomplete, open an elevated command prompt and type the following;

icacls "D:\Favorites" /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low
then enter

changing "D:\Favorites" to your Favorites path

Check if your issue is still there.

Note: This also applies if you can't add favorites to your relocated/moved favorites folder.

Yes, I've noticed these inconsistencies with IE browsing as well, since I make it a habit to delete all cookies and browser activities when logging off, my favorites icons resets to the default IE icon

It's a very helpful feature that you can visually recognize the sites you're visiting. I do hope they'll come up with a fix in the final IE8 release.

OK I found a fix for this problem of favicons not working correctly. This small utility made by Google checks your favorites and puts them back with a button click. I have also noticed that they stopped disapearing after I used it the first time. I believe it sends them to a seperate file for safe keeping which keeps Explorer from flushing them out of the cache all the time. Link below. It's simple and it works.

Sounds like - the URL is saved in more than one location (by whatever means). When you delete the one you are looking at, the OS re-lists one from another location.
