I copied my favorites over from my old profile off the c:\document&settings\username\favorites and pasted them on the same path but in the new profile and now none of the favorites work. I have XP and using IE8. I get no response when I click them from IE8 but when I attempt to open them from the pasted path I get an error stating The target "" of this internet shortcut is not valid. Go to the internet shortcut property sheet and make sure the target is correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
