There is also an alternative to burning cd/dvd. you can also use a external memory stick these are inexpensive and plug into your USB port. they come in several different memory sizes and are found almost everywhere. these are sometimes even better than the cd/dvd cuz you can't damage the surface like a cd. hope this helps please rate this solution. thanks

Use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools)

It will be a lot easier.

When i try to get into my bank site each keystroke


Usually, it takes a "double-click" on the top of the window to maximize it. Check that your mouse has not been configured so that the 1st mouse-button is NOT set to send a "double-click".

However, if you get "doubling" when accessing *ANY* bank web-site, you have a real problem -- it is possible that a program is recording EVERY key that you type, including your bank-card number and your passwords.

Disconnect your computer from the Internet.
Backup all your files to an external disk-drive.
Reinstall Windows, by booting your computer from the "System Restore" CD-ROM media, and choosing to "format" your disk-drive, in order to delete *ALL* files from your current system.
