thanks for the reply, the folders in my Favorites in the roaming profile are
A Shortcut Experts Exchange
these can also be seen in the task bar as well and open no problem.
Also i forgot to say that if the roaming profile has corrupted the way i
know its the roaming profile is because when deleting the locally held
profile which is the copy of the roaming profile its always the favorites
folder that has the problem and within that if you try and look at the
security tab on one of the favorites, there isnt one. its is not always the
same shortcut, it is usually random ones. I am not really worried about
viewing the shortcuts \ favorites, i am more concerned that i have user who
get corrupt roaming profiles. Also another feature of this problem is that
when the user logs on and their profile is corrupt it then creates a
Temp.Domain folder in C:\Documents&Settings
