Greetings.......

Didn't know which category to post this in. Couldn't find the answer in my search. I would like to install a new motherboard/processor to upgrade my P-II 333 system. I have a number of programs on the hard drive that I don't want to lose during the upgrade (downloaded..no CD's). Is there a way to save all my settings (email addresses, internet favorites, desktop setting,...) while replacing the motherboard bundle?? What I would like to do is uninstall the old motherboard/processor, install the new bundle, have windows detect the new hardware, install the new drivers, and be back to the "same system" as before, except a faster processor, better video and sound.

I found a post that talked about deleting the "Enum key" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Will this work or does anyone have any suggestions?

The same post also mentions that the "VMM32" file will not be rebuilt. Is this a concern???

Thanks
