    I thought for WaW your account was held server side as opposed to Cod4.. may be wrong though.

    Is it on Steam or did you buy a hard copy?

    I got mine on Steam and still haven't found a way of backing up my profile :(

    For me, everything is saved in -

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Activision\CoDWaW

    This is on Windows 7 (think its the same with Vista). Could be completely different with XP.

    Steam does have a backup feature...

    Log into steam, go to my games, right click on a game, scroll down and select back up game files, choose save location.

    On XP it should be:

    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Activision\CoDWaW\players\profiles

    :)

    That will not backup the saved games. Follow the advice of those who gave you the path and save the files from there.
