I finally got a new PC using Windows 7 (64bit).  I want to move my I-Tunes account from my old computer which ran Windows XP.  I have music, movies and apps.  Can anyone point me to an eay way to move my I-Tunes account.  My google searches suggest that it is not nearly as easy a process as it should be.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I'm also interested to know. As long as I have my songs saved somewhere else.  Can I just register with my account and all my apps will still be available?

Every time I have moved itunes in the past, I have copied the entire itunes folder over to the new computer. 

If the old itunes folder is copied right on top of the folder that the itunes program uses to store music on the new computer, itunes on the new computer will use the same library file and everything will work fine.

If you have your music/videos/etc stored somewhere else, then you will need to copy the itunes folder over and then copy everything else over in the same directory structure as the old computer.
