How can I prevent my favorites from being sorted alphabetically?

I don’t want my favorites sorted alphabetically, It just started doing that and I don’t know what caused it. The sort by name box is not checked off but it still sorts. I’m using Vista.

    Or switch to Firefox or Chrome! Both offer much more control over the way your favorites/bookmarks are displayed and organized.

    Favorites= bookmarks of ie, right ?

    It will sort alphabetically.
    when you click on organize favorites, right click and sort by name.
    or may be when icons of folders gets automatically sorted by name

    Possible solution I think is:

    sort the icons by date in the favorites folder.
    and reopen IE to check.

    how you can find the folder. "favorites" on oyur computer

    select properties by right clicking on a folder/bookmark
    and check the location.

    it will be somethign like

    C:Users"Current User"Favorites

    sort icons datewise.
