1. Copy the data (from your backup, via usb-stick, via external hard disk, or via your home network)
2. Reinstall the programs (from the original setup or - preferably - from a download of the latest version)
3. Manually re-enter the settings you need.
The sequence isn't important.
I have just purchased a new Dell computer which comes with Windows 7 Professional. I would like to transfer the data/programs/settings from my old Dell running Windows 7 Home Premium to my new computer. How can I accomplish this without messing up the new computer's settings?
