Windows 7: How to prevent WET from migrating the admin user

How to prevent WET from migrating the admin user

Hi

Been trying to migrate a user profile from one computer to another (both W7 Ultimate).
Outlook settings don't get copied and the most annoying thing is it copies the admin user by default also which ends up creating a second admin user on the destination computer.

I can live without Outlook settings, so is there a way to just migrate the user account or another tool that does? Looked at USMt but it says I need the Windows DVD etc.

We have some staff that need to work on another computer hence the requirement. Would love to have Active directory but cannot afford it.

Thanks

Can you see and deselect Admin profile if you click "Customize"?

Ah yes! Thanks GoKay.
Tried it again and it works great with one exception, it's doesn't retain Outlook 2010 settings.

Alright, perhaps you can include those settings similarly if you can learn where they are kept. You can ask in http://www.sevenforums.com/microsoft-office/

Tell them exactly what kind of settings you wish to retain.
