question about transferring steam to a new windows install.

I was having some serious problems with my laptop, and thought I may have had a bad virus, but I couldn't even boot the computer in safe mode to check. I decided to cut my losses and do a clean install of windows since I didn't have too much stuff I was worried about losing.

After I reinstalled, I got a message saying all my old files were kept in a windows_old folder. So could I click and drag things like my steam and itunes folder to my new program files folder in order to avoid having to download everything again?
