    You can't really image specific programs on your computer because each app can make a change to the registry and any number of other system files. Just hold onto your installation CD's and backup and saved game data is the best approach

    I think he wants to make images of the install CDs
    The problem here is that this borders on warez, and warez talk isn't allowed in here.
    All I will tell you is; Alcohol 120% is good for this, more details to how to use it for games use Google

    You could use WinInstall LE (free, google it) to repackage the applications to new MSI's, but most likely you will never use them again. If you want to make legit backups of CDs (as you are allowed to do), Alcohol 120% is your best bet.

    That is if the EULA says you can. There are some that do not allow it.

    Yea, I've seen that too. To the best of my understanding though, the EULA cannot trump fair use provisions in federal law, which allow one backup copy. Of course there is always the sticky DCMA issue.
