    Just to clarify, you went into the favourites folder & deleted the
    favourites bar folder, reinstalling IE8 would just return the folder not the
    links which were within & a system restore may return the folder but as
    you've checked it seems that it may not, if the folder isn't in the Recycle
    bin (it might be named Links rather than favourites bar) then it was too big
    so was deleted completely but you should've received a warning message about
    that beforehand. I can only recommend that you restore the folder from a
    back-up which you should regularly make of your computer if you haven't then
    try system restore again & search your computer for a link or favourites bar
    folder.
    If you're just missing the bar from IE8 right click on the toolbar & restore
    the tick to the favourites bar.
