What's happening with Windows Easy Transfer?

    I'm trying, very hard, to get all of the settings, files, etc, from my old Vista machine to a new Windows 7 machine.  They're both connected to my home network via a RJ-45 cable, so I'm trying to transfer this via my network.  We're at the place where the window says, "Choose what to transfer".  I've clicked the Transfer button (I want all of the users, files, etc to transfer) and it is taking forever for anything to happen.  (I clicked the stupid button an hour ago.)

     

    So, what's going on???????

    Addendum: This is taking so long that I'm getting message windows from WIndows Easy Transfer that say, "Attempting to reconnect", and then they go away and it starts again, and then the "Attempting to reconnect" window pops back up, etc.

    Use the transfer wizard to a local hard disk not directly to the new computer. 

     

    AS far as whats going on...  It's going through every reg key and file and comparing them to a save list database then moving them into one big file (zipped).
