The problem is typically due to a problem with the registry. As long as you are careful, you can edit it.

  • Select start -> run

  • Enter regedit

  • Next, browse through to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\
  • Double click on Favorites and update the data field. It's likely to be something like: c:\PROFILES\USERID\Favorites

  • Next, you'll also need to update: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\ It'll be something like: %userprofile%\Favorites
