Prepare CD or ZIP the following way:

1. Copy to it C:\WINDOWS\Cookies folder
2. Copy to it C:\WINDOWS\Favorites folder
3. Run "Start\Run...", enter "regedit" and hit "OK". Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer. Use Registry\Export registry file to save this key (not all registry) to the folder you designed to store your internet settings.

On the computer where you wont to implement these settings:
1. Copy "Cookies" folder and "Favorites" folder to the corresponding folders into the C:\WINDOWS folder.
2. Run registry file.
3. Tune some IE settings to mutch the local configurations (i. e. paths and so on).
4. Enjoy it ;)

The next time, instead of giving grade "B" please ask for additional info. Not anyone could guess what did you mean.

Well, B means "Good" according to the experts-exchange grading instruction. In my university "A" and "Dist" grades are reserved for rare performance, beyond expectations. Not everywhere is like my university, but I grew up that way.

I never thought a grade of "Good" could make anyone unhappy. In fact there's no reason why I should want to inflict harm on a stranger who helped me.

If in this community "B" and "Good" read "below average" or "below expectation", then I am really quite disappointed with the grading instructions. There's no hint that I should disregard the grading instruction, ignore the grading instruction, and interpret "Good" as derogatory and belittling.

Once again, a real thankyou for your help with MSIE. Your answer did help, that's why I accepted it as answer.
