I need to disjoin from one domain, and connect PC to another domain.

I would like to just cut/paste user profile from old user to the new one, so wouldn't have to set everythign up again.

Any idea how?

Thanks

Use the Transfer Wizard which is built into Windows 7 and export the profile to a USB disk or another partition (using the Old PC option) Make sure you select all you need (I usually enable all folders of a user's profile).

Then connect to the new domain and use the transfer wizard to import the saved profile (new PC this time).
