Hi, if you have a cd r/w then you could save to cd. Save the complete My Documents folder to cd.

to save your favourites go to C:/ documents and settings, open the administraters folder, (or main user) and copy the favourites folder to either a floppy or cd.

To save internet favourites, click file>import and export>next, click on export Favorites

Now click next and next again, select the destination such as a floppy and then click next

All done

To reload them back on the new computer click file>import and export>next, click on Import Favorites then next, select the loaction and Import them

Try Files and Settings Transfer Wizard if you can't see it just do a search of your PC.
