    You can simply move your settings using ‘Save my Settings’ Wizard of Office 2003. This will save all your settings in a file that you move easily to any Windows based PC. You can find this wizard under Start > All Programs > Microsoft office > Microsoft Office Tools. If it is not listed over there than you will need to follow these steps:
    • Open Control Panel by going to Start menu and open And & Remove Programs.
    • Click Change or Remove Programs.
    • In the Currently installed programs list, click Microsoft Office 2003, and then click Change.
    • In the Microsoft Office 2003 Setup dialog box, click Add or Remove Features, and then click Next.
    • In the Features to install tree, expand Office Tools.
    • Click Save My Settings Wizard, and then click Run all from My Computer.
    • Click Update.
    • Click OK when Setup has completed successfully.


    Remember that this will only move your settings and not your pst files. In order to do that, check this How can I transfer Outlook address book to another PC ?
