what IE version were you upgrading from?
did you upgrade the OE to v.6 too

upgrades usually carry the settings etc right through the upgrade

did favourites disappear also?

go to start, run, find files (or tools, find in windows explorer):
look for .dbx and .wab files

usually in C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{bunch of letters and numbers}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

are those type of files listed anywhere else?
