As I said you may need to add links to any program that doesn't show up in All Programs, and if a program can't be made to run from the new account it may need to be reinstalled. But try them all first.

Then just open each User folder (Documents, Pictures, Music, Desktop, Favorites, Videos, etc) , from Organize tab to Select All, drag the group to the same folder on your new User account in Explorer box at left - don't release the left click drag operation until it stabliizes and confirms in the hypertext where exactly you are copying the files.
