Apart from a few vista (DirectX 10) exclusives such as Halo 2 you can simply install the games via the original game cd's onto the xp machine. Note that some games such as Spore have a limited number of installs. If you can list the games your installing I can show you how to copy your save files across to your desktop machine.

I tried the downloads on the link you gave me The Noodle but my anti virus kicked right away with big red notifications saying that downloads from this site are not recommended due to a real threat of possible infections.I decided not to download!

The download urls link to Rapidshare. Rapidshare is a site that allows users to upload their own files and have other users download them. Your antivirus's recommendation is most likely due to the large number of files hosted on Rapidshare that aren't legal (therefore probably contain malware) if you prefer I can upload the files to another service.
