I'm getting a replacement computer at work (notebook)

I've heard tale of a program to help you transfer over important files / settings
(I've got a mess of custom settings in various software, not to mention having to reload all the 'registration' crap.

so how bout it, anything really out there to help a guy out?

Well XP has a file and settings transfer wizard that you can use.

I've only used it a few times myself with no luck.
YMMV

In XP there is a “Files and Setting Transfer Wizard” that will transfer important files and settings. It is not meant to transfer working programs.

As far as that “registration crap” I assume you mean when installing software… You are better off just installing the software than trying to transfer it and then trying to get it to then run worth a damn.

Aloha Bob PC Relocator...works pretty good, does apps and/or everything else. I have had really good and just ok results.

Have your IT guy take an image of yours before, just in case...

hmmm, ok.

looks like I'll make my own image (ghost) and start fresh (probably better off that way)
