    Solved.

    I still could not delete the Favorites folder on the old location the returned message saying not accessible. I tried to change the name and found I could. I created a new Favorites folder and restore the Favorites from the default location.

    The changed name of the Favorites is FavoritesX. If I attempt to delete this, a message says "Are you sure you want to move this folder to the Recycle Bin?" I responded with Yes but the folder stays there and never be deleted. Leaving it there is not a big problem but I would like to get rid of it if possible. Any suggestion?

    Odd. You might see if the free program FileASSASSIN or Unlocker may be able to delete it.

    The Unlocker took care of the folder. I like the Unlocker.
    Thanks for your help.
