when i replace a user's pc i copy the favorites folder to the new pc, and that works fine - however, is the a way to copy a file that has web addresses that where put in the address bar? so when the user starts typing in the address bar internet explorer will drop down the list of addresses they have visited?

The INDEX.DAT file keeps a record of all the web sites you have visited.
Go to to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Be advised that index.dat is protected by the operating system.

"Be advised that index.dat is protected by the operating system. "

You won't be able to copy index.dat while logged on to the user account itself.

Activate the Hidden Admin user account - http://sysnative.com/0x1/Hidden_Admin_Acct.html

Then copy the other user accounts files over.

The Hidden Admin - Vista & Windows 7.

If XP, boot into SAFEMODE and use "Administrator" user account.
