    C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{C8546405-0393-45AB-8739-62D5222FBCFE}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    Or search for *.dbx - save these files and then you can import them using Outlook's Import Wizard when you reinstall.

    Where User is your Windows logon name and {C8546405-0393-45AB-8739-62D5222FBCFE} is different for everybody :)

    Local Settings is a hidden folder too, so make sure you can view it before hunting.

    A few things need to be done. In Outlook go to Tools -> Options then in the General (default) tab uncheck "Automatically log on to AOL Instant Messenger."

    Then you need to disable an AIM service (WinXP and 2000):

    Right-Click My Computer on your Desktop -> Manage -> Services and Applications -> Services then there is a service there called AOL or AIM something service. Find it, right-click it -> Properties then set Startup type to Disabled.
