There's probably a bug in IE8. The only thing I don't understand is why it's only happening to me!
As mentioned by Barman58, verify the permission of your favorites folder.
Validating relocated Favorites folder permissions are a bit trickier than the norm
open a command prompt then type icacls <Favorites Path>
check if you have the following line Mandatory Label\Low Mandatory Level: (OI)(CI)(NW)
If you don't have that line or it's incomplete, open an elevated
command prompt and type the following; icacls "D:\Favorites" /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low
changing "D:\Favorites" to your Favorites path
Check if your issue is still there. Note:
This also applies if you can't add favorites to your relocated/moved favorites folder.
