I have just upgraded from win 98 to xp but do not know how to transfer all the files and programs from 98 to xp. I mainly need microsoft office but don't want to install it again if i don't have to. Help!

You can't transfer programs, especially Office, clairew, you'll have to re-install them afresh on XP.

Asuming when you say 'upgraded to XP' you mean the same machine and XP has overwritten the existing 98?

Or do you mean this is a new machine with XP and you wish to transfer between machines?

A little more clarification of what exactly has been done here please.
