The system Favorites Icon is distinguishable by an open folder containing a star. It initially contains 21 files in 4 folders (supplied by HP):
- Bookmarks Toolbar Folder
- Favorites Bar
- Websites for United States
Deleting the folder results in the following error:
Could not find this item
This is no longer located in C:\Users\User\Desktop. Verify the item's location
and try again.
I deleted all the file contents, all four HP folders and all but four user (now empty) folders:
- Financial - Data, Tools
- Government, Politics & War
- Health & Fitness
which give the same "Could not find ... no longer located ... etc" deletion error.
I've considered creating another user and copying all the user files to her and then deleting the original user but would prefer to correct the registry.
SevenForums does provide:

but this does not address my problem.
I've used the .reg file in Libraries - Add or Remove - Windows 7 Forums

Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks,
