Default lost favorites

I have a user at work that lost his favorites in IE. They still exist in the favorites folder but don't show up in the menu. How do I get those back into IE.

Did his local profile become corrupt ? You may want to repair IE, or rebuild the local profile if you wish for this to be a "quick" fix.

He/She may have a link in the favorites that is too long for windows to recognize... You may need to find the broken "Favorite" and either rename it or delete it.

We run Novell in our environment and we just had to right click on the icon in the NAL and select verify.

Thanks for the help though
