Windows 7 user profiles

I want to create a new user for myself on the same computer and transfer all of my Windows 7 and Office 2010 settings from the current to new user.  I used Windows Easy Transfer but this only copied a few items and didn’t transfer the following items I want:

My Quick Access Toolbars in Office
My Outlook account
Certain programs
Program icons on my taskbar

Any ideas?  What about Roaming Profile?

I found several solutions for migrating my profiles without using Transwiz or any other third party software.  Here's a list of some of the steps I took.  Keep in mind I was setting up a new user for me on the same computer and since I'm the admin on this computer I can access both users (thereby allowing me to copy files between them).

1.      Created new user

2.      Used Win7 Easy Transfer.  FYI:  This doesn't transfer everything

3.      Exported Office Application ribbon settings to a folder on my hard drive than copied to new user from the drive.  Here's a link for this:

4.      Copied my old user Outlook .pst file to my new user.  Here's a link for this:

5.      Copied desktop and favorites from old to new user

7.      Copied IE 10 settings.  If you use IE 10, search help for this.  Please note IE 10 will not copy your home page settings, so you’

I found the Transwiz features description on their website confusing, and rather than take the time trying to determine if it would work for me, I discovered my own solutions.
