Windows 7: Move all user data from one user to another?

Move all user data from one user to another?

I have had my clean install of windows for about a fortnight now. I just recently found that the account I actually want to use though is the hidden "ultimate administrator"kind of user. Is there a quick easy way to migrate my settings and user data from the normal administrator user "tom" to the super administrator user?

the "hidden" SU has virtually the same rights as a member of the admin group so why would you want to? Is there something special you need/want to do?

Well for example, before i reinstalled windows I could save anywhere I wanted on my computer, now it doesnt let me save in places like program files, and im pretty sure the SU can.

Don't do this, its a security risk to use the hidden Administrator account daily.

How so? I know what I do to my OS, and im the only one who uses the computer which never leaves my room. If I screw it up through fault of my own I just use a fresh install. I would rather put up with a screwed up OS and fresh install for a few days than an almost daily issue of my computer stopping me doing things causing me to spend double or triple the time to get something done.

Why don't we try to fix the problem? What are you using to install Windows 7? An OEM copy or retail version?

Get a legal iso of a Genuine Untouched Windows 7 from the internet, I'm not gonna tell you how to do so.
