Move programs and data

I need to move data and programs from my old laptop that keeps crashing to my new laptop. I can't find the discs for two programs I don't want to lose. Is there a solution for this.

Thanks

There is no problem transferring data, but unfortunately most applications cannot simply be copied across. The reason for this is that they have written all their settings to the system registry, and this will not be moved over. Most applications simply will not function correctly under these circumstances.

What are the applications in question, it is possible that there may another way around your problem.
