Default can't find hidden files

i don't know why but my brother was around and hid some of my websites in my favorites list and he also hid the links button which had all my favorite sites, i can't seem to uncover them, i have tried searching but can't recover them, how do you recover them?

In Internet Explorer, go to View > Toolbars > Links. That should make it show up.

when i do that all that shows up is the word links at the side with no actual links and i don't even have the folder in my favorites, and the word links was always there anyway after all the files were hidden, this is probably unfixable and this is probably just another xp error

No, you just have to recreate the Links folder within the Favorites folder. Do that, and readd your links, and it should be fine.

this is getting ridiculous, i can't recreate the links folder because it says one already exists but it doesn't show it and if i create another folder well thats pointless because it won't show up on my toolbar
