How to migrate IE7 autocomplete database to a different system?

I have a user who rather than putting internet addresses they needed to remember in their favorites, they were relying on the IE7 autocomplete database.

They have been migrated to a new system and it seems that the IE7 autocomplete database is not included with a roaming profile.

Does anyone know where IE7 stores the autocomplete database for users, and is it easily copied on to a different system?

Thanks!

It sounds like he wants the history. Try the following programs:

They will allow you to export and import the histories.

thanks.

I did find what i was looking for also.

IE7 stores it's autocomplete database in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

You can also just export and import that registry key.
