Using Firefox/Roadrunner broadband. Last nite while my wife was playing a game on the Pogo site - suddenly there was a white screen with a bright flash - then roadrunner was gone. this morning i re-set roadrunner as our home page - but all the stuff we had in bookmarks was gone! can we get our bookmarks back? thanks, Keith

A System Restore will bring back your bookmarks (My Favorites).

System Restore in XP

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System tools>System restore and choose restore my system to a previous time (or similar). Pick a date from the calendar from just before the problems started and follow the prompts.

thanks for the expediant reply. actually, i tried a restore point via your directions, which i already did several times today. no bookmarks. each time it said the restore point was completed. i don't understand though why things i bookmareked today we're still there after setting restore points to several days ago.

if the bookmarks are actually still on my computer somewhere how do i find them? i'm so lost right now! so.... what should i do next? - Keith
