Within the last month or so I have been noticing that the favorites has been acting strangly on IE7. Sometimes when I slide over a favorite that I know has numerous sub favorites the sub favorites don't appear. I ulimately have to shut down IE and restart it to get the favorites to work correctly again. I also am noticing that IE seems to be running slower. Any assistance is appreciated. joyjg :thumbsup:

Hi joyjg,

Try emptying your Temporary Internet Files.

TMack, I empty the Temporary Internet Files on a regular basis, so that shouldn't be causing any problems. I also run spybot search and destroy, spywareguard, spywareblaster and have Mcafee virus scan and firewall running. The one thing I haven't done is run a defrag cause with the size of the harddrive it takes forever and I currently show 103 gigs free out of 160. I did have some keylogging software that caused a slowdown, but I think I got that off the system. Any additional suggestions. Thanks, Joyjg :thumbsup:

If you're not sure the Keylogger is still on your O/S, download KL - Detector. It's freeware that detects keylogging activity on your computer.
