Windows 7: Some problems about Favorites after accidently delete the User folder

Some problems about Favorites after accidently delete the User folder

I delete the the User folder accidentally(who knows what I were thinking about at that time).

Anyway, then my left navigation panel becomes like this:

I can not put any shortcuts into this folder, or create a new one.

Another problem is, when I go to the User folder, under my account, there is also a Favorites folder.

I can create a shortcut here, but these shortcuts will not appear at the navigation panel.

Your attachments (3 should be there) are invalid, those are not visible.

Try Option two of User Folders - Restore Default Location .... there are some registry files there. Download those and merge those all. Follow the next steps. See how it goes.

If it does not help, Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If it fails to do anything, too, then you should opt for a Repair Install.
