Windows 7: IE 9 Windows 7 - Favourites are blank

IE 9 Windows 7 - Favourites are blank

I have windows 7 64 bit computer running IE9. When I click on the Favourites menu I can see the first level of websites and or folders that I have put there. But when I click on one of the folders to view the web addresses inside all I get is a blank area on the screen. I can search in Favourites within Explorer and the addresses are all there but when I am using IE9 and click on the Favourites the second level of addresses or addresses within the folders cannot be seen. It appears like a "ghost" box. So the flyout box is empty but if I click randomly in that box then I will go to a web address but they are invisable. Hope this makes sense!!

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You could try uninstalling IE9 as the install may be corrupted, and then re-install it after a reboot.
