    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.

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

    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
    http://www.ie-vista.com/kbase2.html

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

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

    3. Reinstall IE7 exactly per
    http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install, and using
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/default.mspx as the installation
    source, not Automatic/Windows Update.

    4. IMMEDIATELY go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com 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.
