Copying user data from XP to Windows 7

Recently a user was switched to a windows 7 computer and the tech ran the built in migration tool but never tested to see if the data actually moved over.
Unfortunately it appears to most of his setting did not come over.. specifically cookies and favorites so far...
I have the cookies and fav saved and just looking for the best solution on moving them...A
Aside from just copying to \users\user profile\favorites...
I am looking to see where the cookies are stored...
Any good advise would be helpful.

In Internet Explorer, select FILE >> Import and Export  >> Export to a file >> Select Favorites and Cookies >> Select the folders to export >>  Enter the Favorites export file name >> Enter the Cookies export filename >> copy the two files to a USB flash drive or network folder, and import them on the new computer.

Under c:\users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files you can find the cookies.

Additionally if you use outlook you'll probably want to move PST files
c:\users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
NK2 files
c:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
Signitures
c:\users\%username%\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures
I always liked to bring over the dictionary but you have to get it from:
c:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof
and copy it to:
c:\users\%username%\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof
