    I'm running XP Pro but, I just found out it was a bootleg copy and I want to go back to XP Home which is a legal program.

    When I go from XP Pro to XP Home is there any way I can save all of my programs and items like my bookmarks and games?

    Bookmarks are easy, they just export into an html file. And after your reinstall the games just overwite the folders with the saved data, it usually works, but not always.

    It's difficult to go from Pro to Home...pretty easy the other way around.

    At this point I would backup your stuff and reinstall. Putting another OS on top of an existing OS is bad news.
