Mike why you need to move windows folder? Do you have Operating System Installed on new PC? If you have already and You are thinking that your All applications profiles who were running on your OLD PC will be available on new PC if you copy windows and other folders to new PC then it will never work.

You need to Take a backup of old PC , complete Backup then needs to restore that backup to the new PC on which Operation system is already installed then you can Change the Computer name and all.

> how to I get folder Window on the new Win 7 PC

I assume you mean folder Windows (not Window). It will already be on your new W7 PC. When W7 is installed, it creates the C:\Windows folder. Moving your data and your programs from the old PC to the new one is a different issue — your data and programs are not stored in the C:\Windows folder. Regards, Joe
