Windows Easy Transfer Question

I just bought a new computer and was going to use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer, documents, pictures, music, program settings, Windows settings as well as other settings to the new computer, so I was wondering if transfer the program and Windows settings will affect anything on the new computer.

I am sorry. Are you asking if using the transfer wizard will change something in the new OS, of course it will.

Can you tell us exaclty what y our concerns are?

Possibly, depending on the program. I believe IE settings etc may be affected.
