You cannot.
You CAN transfer your files.
Programs can only be installed using the installer that is made for the program so gather your install disks and download installers until you have replaced all that you can of what you really want. Do not try to install utilities written for XP or older systems on Windows 7 but you can look to see if there is any updated version made for Windows 7. As far as utilities is concerned, try the Windows native utilities to see if you like them first before trying 3rd party utilities, many of them work better and are integrated better than anything else out there anyway. Many of your older programs should work just fine on Windows 7 but some of them may not (remember to try compatibility options to install those that give you problems).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
