IE Favorites not working

Folks let me make a long story long.. Sorry.  Just recently i have two XP Os macnines and one newly loaded Win7 with IE8. The machines all of which are not letting anyone save an interneet favorite to it in any way. The XP were working fine, but the newly loaded WIn7 i an not sure why....   Now let me add I have looked at HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\User Shell Folders and made sure that it said %USERPROFILE\Favorites.  I have used the compatibility feature.  Checked permissions, and tried to find some anwers all over the internet and nothing other that the registry entry..  Anyone encounter this and have a possible solution?

open my computer and browse to the fave folder... make sure you have full control of it in security and further, take ownership of it in the advanced options.

create a new user account on that computer, log in with that and see if you can save favorites using that profile. if yes then there is some corruption in the other profile.
I have a difficulty in understanding you...
Are these 3 machines connected in any way ?

Thanks all
I have solved the issue.  Turns out, we use Webroot antispyware and in the configuration there is a setting to set up Favorites shield.  That was shutting off the ability for users to save favorites.  As soon as i relaized the one thing they all had in common with each other was that they were loaded with the Webroot software, i changed the server and problem solved.  Sorry i made the question goofy was in that panic hurry but it turns out the one thing that was saving them was the one thing stopping that issue.  Thanks!
