Windows 7: Desktop Icons and I.E 9 Favourites Problems

Desktop Icons and I.E 9 Favourites Problems

Since the advent of Win 7, I have been successfully dual booting WIN 7 Pro 64, and Win Vista Ultimate 64 on two separate disks..
With the imminent release of WIN 8 I decided to remove the Vista disk in preparation for upgrading to WIN 8, and thence to Dual Boot WIN 7 64 and WIN 8 64. Unfortunately, after disconnecting the vista disk, I have a couple of minor problems when running WIN 7.
The problems are – Clicking on any of the Desk top Icons does not run the relevant application immediately, instead it comes up with an error window stating that the application is unsigned, and do I really want to run it ? Clicking ‘yes’ then runs the application OK.
Secondly I lose all my ‘favourites’ in I.E 9, Favourites comes up as a blank page, and I am unable to add any favourites to it, nor import any from a previously exported file.

I have tried ‘Taking Ownership’ of the Desktop, and Favourites folders in C:\users \mine\, but still the problems remain.
Reconnecting the Vista Disk and everything works OK again, can anyone suggest a solution to these problems before I upgrade the Vista disk to WIN 8
Many thanks
