Backup is the most important task when we plan to reinstall a tool. IE is no different. But, restoring the browser back to your configuration can be time consuming without the right tools. There are many tools available over internet using which you can take backup of your saved information like passwords and bookmarks on your Internet Explorer, but still none of these tools is able to backup complete data of IE. Thus, over the years, I have to make adjustments to my browser settings to get them just the way I like them each time I reinstalled it.
