    Step 1 - Find over sized mallet, preferably made of wood, but synthetic materials will do.
    Step 2 - Locate problematic application on said computer.
    Step 3 - Smash mallet into keyboard until application submits to your bidding. If that doesn't work, use mallet on self.
    Step 4 - Repeat step 3 until computer is obliterated or you forget the issue from massive head trauma.

    That was stupid. But anyway, have you tried to call customer service. They never have the right answers but atleast they can give you an idea of what to do.

    I think it was on par with the initial question....Neither of which should be taken seriously.

    For a real answer, get Firefox. Favorite tabs and a download manager are preinstalled features that needn't be configured to work properly. You can port your old IE favorites by following the simple (and automatic) prompt upon installation, or you can opt to build from scratch by dragging the URL to your fav bar (one of the initial icons upon application start).

    ...but again, I'm having a hard time taking this string seriously.

    True. Some sites, take the Microsoft site for example, will not let you do some higher functions unless you are using IE. Other sites just don't look the same with Firefox. As a work around, Firefox has a right-click Extension for "preview in IE". It can be used for links or for the current page. This is useful for web design too.

    Oh yeah, you need to download the extension from the firefox extension page. Admittedly, I am a fanboy of Firefox, but I realize the importance of not deleting IE from my drive.

    Can IE be uninstalled from Windows? I've read a lot of tweaking articles that make me nervous: some say <this many> files can be removed safely, others say Windoze can't function without them.

    The original questions sounds sorta like a trojan/spyware problem. There was that mega-virus DeFuC... that disabled wallpaper in the display tab. I don't know of one that disables Favorites, but it's possible.
