    I would like to uninstall and reinstall my IE& on my XP-SP2 desktop. I would
    like to find a clean easy way to accomplish this without destroying my
    between these two processes. Is this a possibility to be accomplished?
    Thanks in advance . . . Tom J.

    IE-File-Export and create a single HTML file for later use with

    What do you hope to achieve by "uninstall and reinstall" of IE6?
    It is far from a magic bullet.

    Done properly, your Favorites should be preserved when uninstalling IE7 and
    reinstalling it.

    1. Uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6) per

    2a. Uninstall all toolbars and third-party Windows Themes (including Window

    2b. Disable all Norton Add-ons, if applicable.

    3. Reinstall IE7 exactly per, and using as the installation
    source, not Automatic/Windows Update.

    4. IMMEDIATELY go to and install any
    critical updates offered. If a "Root Certificates" update is listed in the
    Optional category, you might install it, too, to take full advantage of
    IE7's additional security.
