    I have finally sucked it up and acquired a new machine with Windows 7 and
    IE8. I have years of favorites stored (in folders and subfolders) and want
    to import all of them into my new setup. I've burned hours trying to figure
    this out with no success. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Import Or Export Favorites In Internet Explorer
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Import-or-export-favorites-in-Internet-Explorer

    Export the favorites to the Desktop and from there, copy to CD or flash.
    Copy these to the Desktop on the other machine and import them.

    Why not use Easy Import in Windows 7 to transfer them?

    Use BackRex IE backup to transfer all your IE settings, browsing history.
    favorites . You can get this at
    http://www.backsettings.com/internet-explorer-backup.html
    I have used this and it is excellent.

    Is the "demo" version fully-functional (without having to purchase it)?

    This is a fully-functional freeware version. No purchase required. This is
    a freeware utility.
