dat transfer XP to 7

When I try to load Easy transfer to XP Home to transfer files into my new computer with Windows 7, I receive a message that I am logged in as a guest when I am logged in as system administrator. Any suggestions?

Hello bofirch, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

If you would please, could I have a few more details? You have already used the Easy Transfer Wizard to save your XP stuff, right! Now what 7 have you installed? How many user accounts have you created? How do you start the Easy Transfer Wizard in 7?

Any additional info would be helpful.

Thanks for your response. The problem is that the easy transfer software won't install on my XP machine. When I try to install it, it rejects the installation and gives me a error message that says I cannot install this software because I am logged on as a guest user, please re-start you computer and try again. I am the only user of this computer and I am logged in as the systems administrator. Any suggestions?
