Re: upgrading to new computer
Windows includes the ability to do this for you. On the new system just type "transfer" into the start menu and click on the option that shows up, and it'll step you through the process. This is the easiest way.
If you have a network, or can take the drive out of your old system and put it into the new system, you could just copy files over that way as well, but it's a little more involved.
