    all the items that were under Favorites in the sidebar of Windows Explorer have disappeared.

    The link to the Download folder was there - the actual folder is still under users.

    what happened?

    Type favorites into Start/search and hit Enter. What do you see?

    If you right click favorites, does the Restore Favorite Links help any?

    I don't suppose you just collapsed the tree...
