Inability to add Web sites to Favorites
Hello,

I'm unable to add Web links to my Favorites list in Internet Explorer.
Every time I try to add something to my Favorites list, an error window opens
that says "unable to create [name of favorite]: Unspecified error".

I'm using Internet Explorer 7, 64-bit edition, Windows Vista Home Premium
(64-bit)on an HP machine with an AMD quad core processor and 5 Gb RAM.

The user account that has the problem is one that I recently changed from
Administrator to Standard user (following a recommendation I read that
suggests it's safer to do conduct most computer activity as a Standard User,
and to only log on as an administrator when one needs to make system
changes). When I log on to the new Administrator account I set up, I have no
problem adding things to my Favorites list in IE 7. The problem occurs
regardless of whether I'm using the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of IE. And,
re-upgrading my standard user account back to administrator had no effect on
the problem.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.
