I tried to import the favorites after installing the os AGAIN. Anyway, I get the message that I don't have the privileges to do this.

I know I have to go into the user accounts, but I know it is not the same one as in the control panel.

I used to know all this off the top of my head, but I guess my brain needs a format and install.

Thanks.

If I understand correctly you want to import favorites to IE (?) if it is so you can doe it manually:

Using explorer make a copy of your favorite files and paste it into C:\Documents and Settings\ <your user name>\favorites


Good luck!

No. I want to adjust the read write privileges for each user. I can't import it manually because, despite being the administrator on the pc, I cannot save the file to the correct location.

THank you.

Just so you know: I tried that and it didn't work, either.

Home or Pro?

Pro has built-in mechanism for adjusting permissions, while Home can be adjusted to facilitate permissions.

You can adjust permissions for files/folders via the Security Tab.

Neither of those is what I'm seeking. I've done it before by using the Run command and typing in something to do with users and passwords.

I give up.
