Default Minor help please

Not very good with computers as you can see...Well I got a new computer and installed programs such as steam, aim, mozilla, sbcglobal, etc etc. I reformatted my windows but backed up my old files before creating a new OS user. Right now everything is fine, but I want to fuse the back up files with my new os files. For instance, I can go run spybot through mycomp/driverc/backupfiles/spybot, but spybot isnt on my new os user list. Just asking, how can I replace or rewrite my backupfiles to my new os user's list.

you cant restore the programs from a backup if that is what you are on about...

they wouldnt have thier registry values, and would not run. you will have to install them again.
