I have only been on the computer for a year or so and I'm not sure I'm supposed to be here. I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with a Vista Home Premium OS on a 64 bit platform. I want to backup the system but the backup program doesn't backup programs but only files. I don't have a lot of files but I did have a lot of programs to backup. Can I upgrade to a Vista Business, Ultimate or Enterprise system? Or can I only upgrade to Windows 7? Is there a 3rd. party backup system that will do files and programs? I'm also interested in backing up to a virtual server and running a virtual computer, is there any programs out there that do that sort of thing? I found an Acronis system but from what I've seen it's an $1800 system and I'm looking for something that is free or close to it any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Using a Google search engine I'm not sure what hardware I have.
