There should be two keys to check, if you enter the following two lines one at a time, (clicking the OK after each), into your Run dialog, they should be at Windows default settings again.

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" /v Favorites /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%%USERPROFILE%%\Favorites" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" /v Favorites /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%%ALLUSERSPROFILE%%\Favorites" /f

You will need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

Thanks: I can now install programs.
