ok so my computer has a couple viruses in it so i decided to give it a new windows installation
what i did though is just change the defualt windows installation to just window (c:\windows to c:\window) leaving all data intact
now, what i want to know is is it possible to copy user profiles from the other installation over to this new installation. i want the new installation to have those programs running as the original installation without having to reinstall those programs.
any help will be appreciated. thanks

You'll need to remove all infections, otherwise you'll just reinfect the new install.
There's no workaround for that, that I know of.
