I rescently gave my brother a computer all setup with windows and bought a new one.I asked him to hold off on formatting and fdisking the drive.The reason for this is to get the files downloaded on the new one.He has been using the computer as a user with my sister and my files still on the the one he is using.Will this be bad if I were to use or download the same fills I had on the old computer,from the internet.(eg.old computer used msn,I downloaded msn again to get my mail.)I will be removing the files on the brother's computer Friday.

No, if I understand your question correctly, there shouldn't be a problem.

It sounds like there isn't going to be a problem. If you need to search for specific files that you used before you gave handed over the computer just do a search (by file extensions with wild card, i.e. *.doc, *.ppt etc) and look and sort by the modified date: Start > Search > Files or Folders

I did have to start over on the old computer to set my brother up as I was the register of the computer.All old files are gone and the computer is his wholely and solely now.

There seems to be a problem,in msn,has noticed and changed the contacts list I used on the old computer so I cannot chat with others,or read my email there.If I log on to msn when my bro is on there it closes the computer down.Tomorrow is the delete day for bro.
