    Hi,

    I recently had to format my drive and re-install xp. I saved my favorites list, but can't find a convienient way to export them back into the IE favorites menu. I would do it manually, but I've got 1000s of sites listed. Any suggestion would be appretiated.

    Thank you.

    What I've done in the past is copy the folder into my profile under favorites.

    Go to you C drive (or whatever drive it is) Dcouments and Settings/'your profile'/favorites

    HELP IS HERE!

    don't worry, there is a way, follow these instructions:

    go to:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username \Favorites
    Once in there, you should see the favourites that Windows XP has.

    If you backed them up onto a cd, then simply copy all your Favourites from the cd and paste them into your
    C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username \Favorites
    folder

    BANG! Your done, to check that it worked, open up IE6 then click on Favourites, all your favourites should be there and if they were in any folders they should be there to.

    HOPED THIS HELPED!

    cheers,
    dayne
