New XP Log In name....Default CAD Settings

We just set up a new Windows XP network that gave me a new log in name. Now, of course, when I open C3D my settings are back to the factory settings. I copied all of the folders under Documents and Settings (that had anything to do with Autodesk) of my old name and pasted them into my new name. This didn't solve the problem. Are there other files somewhere that I need to copy and paste to restore my settings?

Thanks,
Rick

You need to logon as your old self, and export your profile and reload that profile in as your new self. You are missing your Windows Registry Settings from your old self.
