Windows 7: Need proper registry entries to counter changes I made

Need proper registry entries to counter changes I made

I made a mistake by not backing up the registry in Windows 7 home premium 32 bit before making a couple changes to the registry. What I need is the proper string value for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders and then the string value for Favorites

I also need the string value for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders and then the string value for Favorites

I would extremely appreciate someone copying and pasting the string values for those 2 locations, thanks!!

Thanks for the reply but I was able to run next door to a neighbors with the same OS and get the proper values from them :-)
