But, i think the reason my Firefox favorites were deleted is because of these corrupt files. (What is chkdsk?)

So, if i fix these do you think my favorites will be restored hopefully?




Thanks! :whistling:



PS: My IE favorites are still there.

Hey there erik567. Try this:

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Let me know if it worked. Cool :whistling:

You can still try "Chkdsk /f /r"

This should fix your problem, as it is requesting you to do so.

What will make this fix easier for you is if you just uninstall "Firefox" then reload. But first attempt the chkdsk. This might fix other problems that your computer has.

Hey there again erik567, its nice to know that you got your problem fixed.

I assumed you re-installed Firefox, when uninstalling firefox you uninstall the fav's with it. But try and import fav's from IE, maybe you saved a few in there.
