Are you running XP or Vista?

Scroll down to InnervateD's post. this should work in any OS after XP. I don't think anyone's found a solution for XP, but if there is one it must be very similar, just a case of locating all the Windows live directories, backing them up and restoring them after you have reformatted and reinstalled g4wl.
I'd also make sure you update to the latest g4wl, you may run into problems if you back up files from a previous version
I believe that currently it's at 3.1

i have windows XP and i want to upgrade to seven, but i can't find those folder's
i think this will be difficult.

Try and find as many G4wl folders as you can, just in case
