    so i had to reinstall vista and it put and windows.old file on my computer. well i need the software and drivers on the old windows file because it was a preloaded copy and with the fresh install i did not get all the software and drivers that the computer manufacture put on. now if i simply drag them to the new system they dont work and can not be found. how can i transfer the old data. and when i try to use them from the actually old windows file it wont work to. maybe if i share the folder?

    You can't just drag (most of) the programs over. You will need to find installation files for them and reinstall them from scratch. Since they were pre-loaded you will need to go looking online. Any system utilities should (hopefully) be on the vendor's website.
