Won't happen. Even the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" will not move programs (programmes for the British) installed on the hard drive. Programs will not "move", they have to be installed onto the new computer. Files, pictures, documents, movies, favorites, etc. will move/copy. Programs will not. If you don't have the original installer for these programs you're back to square one, reinstall. If you don't have the original installers, dig into your pocket.
I'm afraid you're SOL.
I have an old compaq laptop running windows XP, the hard drive is small and sub-divided into C and D drives, it doesn't have much memory and it runs ok but slowly. I want to buy a new faster laptop with a bigger screen, faster processor, more memory and a decent size hard drive.
My problem is, how can I transfer my existing programmes into a new computer? I bought the E500 second-hand and don't have any original cds for the programs it has. I have read reviews for the major transfer systems and many people seem to have had problems with them. Given that I know very little about computers, what would you recommend?
