Can it be done so I don't have to remember all of my log-in usernames and passwords on a new computer?

Sure...I do it all the time :thumbsup:.

You can either do individual cookies or the whole lot (my choice).

Just copy the cookies folder relating to you somewhere...then when the O/S is installed on the new system, just put your cookies in your Docs/Settings/Your ID/Cookies folder or just replace that folder with the old one.

Same thing works for email (if you use OE), WAB, and Favorites. Correction: Email is a little different since messages (probably) need to be imported.
