My internet favorites and desktop shortcuts disappeared today after a System Restore. When I try to add back my IE favorites I get a message that says there are already files with the name (although I cannot see them in my Favorites file). For example, if I try to add Google as a favorite it says there exists a favorite with this name and asks if I want to overwrite it. If I do, it creates Google (2). It seems like the favorites are still there but I cannot see them.
Also most (but not all) of my desktop shortcuts disappeared too.
Any ideas how to get by Favorites and desktop shortcuts back?
