What's the difference between 'back up' and 'copy'? I want to transfer a program from my secondary computer, purchased at a garage sale, to my primary computer, which I bought new.

Lots of programs add stuff to the Windows registry when they're installed, so just copying from one PC to another may not work. If you have the original disks, CD, whatever, you will be best off installing from them onto your new PC.
