Welcome sleepyd0069 :D

You'd think there'd be an easy way, wouldn't you? <_<

Usually the best and easiest way is to install all the programs you had on your old computer onto your new computer using the install disks. Then copy over the files you've created (usually the "my documents" folder) using explorer.

Often times the easiest way to accomplish this is by installing the hard drive from your old computer into your new one (depending on your level of expertise :D ). Install one as the master and one as the slave. Usually, the old drive will be the slave, as the new drive is already configured as the master. If you need help installing the old hard drive, just ask.

We'll also need some more details. Do you have Outlook, or Outlook Express files you also want to transfer. If so, please specify and we can help you know which ones to copy, and where to find them. Any other files your concerned about?
