Favorites missing after the upgradation

The Problem:-I have upgraded my operating system from windows 98 to Windows XP and since then all my favorites of internet explorer are missing.

Cause:-This happens because favorites are located in different locations in both the operating systems.In case of Windows 98 it's located under the %Windir%\Favorites where as in case of Windows XP it's located under %Userprofile%\Favorites.

Resolution:-To resolve this problem simply copy the shortcuts of all the favorites from the old location to the new location.

Favrouite's are important sometimes
and quickest way to navigate your
"Favrouite" links without remembering them.
