Favourites folder dissapeared

My favourites folder has disapeared from the hard drive, when I open Internet explorer (6) all of my favourites are there, but the folder containing the favourites must have moved or dissapeared because when I open my user name's folder in documents and settings there is no folder.
-I've deffently got hidden files and folders visible
-I seareched the computer and there's no folder called Favourites
-I have opera installed and use firefox portable.
Anyone know what's happened to it?
