It should be in C:\Documents and Settings\<your_name> (using WinXP).
Otherwise go to IE. Open the Favorites sidebar.
Select all CTRL+C. Goto the location of choice CTRL+V.

try searching for favorites rather than favourites...
U.S. spelling. :D

thanks for the replies guys.
turns out that it didn't find it in the search coz it was spelt the u.s way.
and i was looking in the wrong folder. i was looking in each user's MY DOCUMENTS. not DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS. oh well :)
problem solved now. thanks for the help.
Just for future information: you can also export the favorites from IE...
Handy if you want to migrate to a different browser like firefox or mozilla...
