    Why is it that when I reboot Vista, all of my favorites disappear?

    don't know why



    but here's a solution



    1. Open the Registry Editor (Start | Run | regedt32.exe or regedit).

    2. Browse to the key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVerion\Explorer\User Shell Folders.

    3. Look up the value: Favorites.

    4. If it's value type is not REG_EXPAND_SZ, delete the value and re-create it (type REG_EXPAND_SZ).

    5. Now make sure the value Favorites has as content: %USERPROFILE%\Favorites.

    6. Close the Registry Editor.
