I have bought a new computer and need help transferring the photoshop actions i bought and installed on my old computer to my new one. I have photoshop elements 7 installed on both computers. I located the files on my old computer and thought i saved them to a disk but when i put them on my new computer it isn't working. They look to be shortcut files. When i go to the effects panel on my new computer there is a black box where the thumbnail picture of the action and name should be. If i put the cursor over it, the file name shows up with shortcut after it and when i click on it, it says its not suppprted by photoshop. Please help!!!

You can do it using this tutorial: http://www.zinstall.com/how-to/how-to...
It moves Photoshop itself, all the files, actions, presets, brushes etc.

They also have one for Creative Suite in general, worked to move CS5 for me:
