    hi

    I think you don't need to go to application data\microsoft, but application data\identities.

    In here you will find a map with a strange name, the dbx files will be in there.

    Thats what I think, not 100% sure

    Franky I found them.
    The dbx files are in the folder:

    C:\Documents and settings\[your name]\Local settings\application data\identities\[folder with weird name]

    Just replace c:\ with your drive letter, your name and the folde with the weird name.

    In the folder with the weird name you will find the dbx files :D
