Windows 7: Favorites are Missing when I download IE 9

Favorites are Missing when I download IE 9

I downloaded IE 9, and the yellow star with my Favorites is missing along with all my favorite links. Unless there is a way to get them back(and I have no clue how) I will just go back to IE 8, any help would be greatly appreciated. I have Windows 7. Im also pretty much computer "challenged" so if someone could explain it very simply,lol would be great. Thanks
