I am about to do a clean install of Windows XP and want to import my cookies from my current install to the new one so I don't have to re-enter all of my username and passwords on websites.

How can I do this?

Thanks!

But FYI the cookies are stored in your Temporary Internet Files folder which by default is in C:\Documents and Settings\(your user name)\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files. You might be able to just copy them from there to your new Temporary Internet Files folder. I'd keep a backup as well until you're sure it's working.

Change C: to whatever letter your Windows partition is, of course.

Otherwise, I don't know if the File and Settings Transfer Wizard that comes with XP transfers cookies or not. Worth a shot.

You know, I use AIRoboForm myself and I used to try to encourage other people who's computers I worked on to use it, too, but they don't. You can take a horse to water...

Of course a lot of people use the same password for everything, but AIRoboForm makes it easy to use different cryptic passwords for everything.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
