I hope that is the right sub-
A few weeks ago when I clicked on 'favorites' it showed up empty. I can still find them in the explorer menu but the link is broken. The regedit looks like it is correct. 4%userprofile%\favorites

Assuming this is in I.E., go to your profile on the C: drive, and make sure the Favorites directory is there, and populated. And check the folder rights on that folder, if your account for some reason lost rights to read/write to there, it won't work in I.E.
