Open up My Computer from your desktop.

Click Drive C, then Documents and Settings. Open up the folder associated with your account name.
Then open up Start Menu/Programs. Create a new folder for your browsers.


Next go to Program Files.
Open up the folder associated with Google Chrome.
Find the icon which launches Chrome.
RIGHT click on the icon to highlight it.
Next, on the left side of the page choose Copy this file.

When the dialog opens, click Local Disk C/Documents and Settings.
Click the + next to your account name.
Then click + next to Start Menu.
Click on the word PROGRAMS to highlight it. The Programs folder will open, you should see the folder you created in the first step. Highlight the folder name, then click Copy.

Repeat this step for Firefox.
