Hi. I take it you don't have any install CD(s) for the programs? You can easily transfer saved data for programs, but as far as moving them over, you need the install file(s) so that it can add things to the registry as well.

Ok, as long as you can work with the programs. That's the hardest part. Now, photos and such are easy. Do you have a CD burner? If you do, you can burn them to a CD. There's tons of other options as well, but this is usually good for long term backup as well.
