Sounds like you should back up your data and do a clean install ... your problem is a carry over from Vista, when you deleted the favorites folder...

Hello Headshot,

Running a sfc /scannow command may be able to restore it for you. If not, then you can create a new administrator account, copy the contents of your old user account's C:\User\(user-name) user folders into the corresponding new account's C:\User\(user-name) user folders. If everything checks out ok, then you can delete the old user account from within the new account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

While you are logged on to one of the users accounts, you would just manually copy the folder contents to the other account's user folders in Windows Explorer. I would open two windows to make copying and pasting easier to do though.
