Ever since I've been surfing from Win 95 till now, My FAVORITES have never been "Condensed" as it is now on XP.
I've had this Computer for over Two Years and it has never condensed my Favorites on IE7
It does now though. If I don't use some of the favorites at least every 7-10 days or so, they get condensed and I have to click a double down-arrow to get them to show up and they are all shaded that are "Hidden" or Condensed.

HOW can I turn OFF this ANNOYANCE!

I also have a very very slow boot up.
Here is what it is doing now and has been the past couple of weeks, about the same time the Favorites started "Condensing"

Cold start with the computer off.
Press on button at 0:00 seconds
DELL is displayed at 0:05 seconds
XP is displayed at 0:12 seconds
Welcome is displayed at 0:40 seconds
Wormhole Screen (on XP) is displayed at 1:10 (1 minute 10 seconds)
The desktop Icons appear at 2:30 (2 minutes 30 seconds)
The Hourglass (that is with the Mouse pointer) disappears at 2:50
Its the time between Wormhole display and the Icons appearing that used to take seconds now is over a minute.
That's were the problem is.
How can this be fixed too?
I have gone through a BUNCH of tests with Syler (thanks!)
There wasn't any malware/virus etc found.

It could be that somehow the box in Internet Properties to "Enable Personalized Favorites Menu" got checked. The setting for that is on the advanced tab of Internet Properties under Browsing

Thanks for the response, but that box is unchecked.
