Today I gave my son-in-law a (2003) IBM6578-LBU Desktop Computer . . . to replace his (2000) eMachines eTower 667ir computer.

I deleted all my FAVORITES from IE7 folder (from folder Administrator) from the IBM PC, copied all his FAVORITES from his IE7 folder (from a folder with HIS NAME) on the eMachines PC to a flash drive, . . . then, copied them to the IE7 folder (in the folder Administrator) on the IBM PC.

Later I thought that the IBM PC did not have his name listed under C:\Documents and Settings (as it was on his eMachine) and am now wondering what will happen when he signs into AOL and opens the FAVORITES tab.

Will he see the FAVORITES I copied to IE7 on the IBM PC (or will they only show up if I sign into AOL) . . . or must I setup a NEW USER ACCOUNT first on the IBM machine and move the FAVORITES into the folder under HIS name ??

Or is he going to see those FAVORITES even though this was MY PC previously ???

I hope I explained this correctly. (BOTH computers are running WinXP Pro SP3)

Thank you for any replies.
