I have purchased a new laptop. The OS is Windows XP Service Pack2. The laptop I have now has Window XP Service Pack3. I have a couple questions about moving to this new computer. 1) Should I update to Service Pack3 before doing anything else? 2) I have an external hard drive that I use Acronis True Image Home 2009 to back up my hard drive onto. Is there a way to only backup the programs I want to and then move them to the new computer? Or is it better to reinstall these programs from CD's? 3) Also is there anything I haven't thought of that I should do with the new computer before transferring my old applications? If you need any of the technical information from my new laptop or old laptop please let me know. Thank you in advance for all your help.
