    Did you migrate your Favorites by using the Import and Export Wizard in
    both versions of Internet Explorer?

    What Leonard said.

    Also, did you change the location of Favorites on the Win7 box?

    Reset UserShell folders to default via the Fix It in

    In that case, there's more to your problem than you're saying. The
    Import and Export Wizard has been part of Internet Explorer almost from
    the beginning, and it works.

    Hi,
    Are you allowing the Live Toolbar to sync your Favorites with a skydrive
    account?
