I'm setting up my No.1 daughter with a new Win 7 PC, and am in the process of transferring her XP stuff to the new PC. Things have gone well, so far. Have been using an 80 GB USB H/D and have successfuly transferred her Thunderbird and
Firefox e-mails, addressbook, bookmarks etc. using Mozbak. Next stage is to set up a non-administrator account for the G'son. How can I trasfer his applications and games over as I don't know where the install devices are - family breakup amd I don't want to go begging. So any help here would be gratefully appreciated.

Have come to my senses and realised I'm not doing the Great North Run any more. An age related decision!

You cannot transfer games and applications from one computer to another. Games and applications (programs) have to be installed directly on the computer it will be used. Also some games and programs who worked on XP might not be compatible on Win 7 you can try compatibility mode but it does not always work.
