i started getting intrusion attempt notifications from norton listing "https tidserv request 2" as the risk. i was thinking of getting a new computer anyways. after some searches and looking here, not being very computer knowledgeable, i've decided it'll be easier for me to just buy the new computer. this one's 7 years old! and has its own mechanical issues anyways...
my question is, is it safe to transfer files from this computer to the new one? music, photo's, quicken data, things like that.

EDIT: Moved from XP to more appropriate Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.

"https tidserv request 2"
This is regarded as a severe infection - I would try to have this infection cleaned first -
It may transfer to the new system -
