Windows 7: Why do Favorites keep disappearing?

Why do Favorites keep disappearing?

Got a new MaxForce dual boot PC w/ Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit installed. I prefer Firefox, but my wife likes Internet Explorer, so we've got both browsers installed on both sides of the PC. The problem I'm having w/ Windows 7 is that the favorites keep disappearing on Internet Explorer. Doesn't seem to be a problem w/ Firefox. I was using Explorer 9 Beta (which I don't like anyway), so I thought since it's still in beta, maybe that's the problem. Uninstalled Explorer 9, now using Explorer 8, but the disappearing Favorites is still w/ me.

At random times, when I click on the "Favorites" tab, there will be nothing there. Looking in the user files, the Favorites folder and the HTML file is still there w/ all the links intact. Try to import to Internet Explorer from the HTML file, but Explorer won't allow. If I do enough clicking around, etc., in different files and then go back to Internet Explorer, the Favorites are back. Anyone have any idea what's going ?.
