Use WinZip to extract the three files to a new folder, then copy the
favorites.xml file to that same folder..then double click msnfav.vbs.

MSN Favorites Export Toolkit
The original version of the XSL file in the reference message didn't account
for subfolders. This has been fixed. Credit : Henry van den Broek.
This package, allowing to convert MSN favorites to a format suitable for
import in Internet Explorer can now be downloaded from
Oddly enough, the import feature of IE cannot handle the favorites.xml
file that contains your MSN Explorer favorites. Someone recently asked
for a solution, so I have prepared a (quick and dirty) toolkit that does
the job. It transforms a MSN favorites file (favorites.xml) into a
Netscape favorites file (bookmark.htm) that is (ironically) suitable for
import into IE.
Just put favorites.xml, msnfav.vbs and msnfav.xsl in the same folder and
run msnfav.vbs. The script will output a bookmark.htm file that you'll
be able to import into IE. Beware: the favorites.xml file must not be
edited before applying the XSL transform.
