XP pro back-up

I have windows XP pro which came pre-installed and would appreciate any advice on creating back-up discs in case of system failures, windows crashing etc as I don't have the original windows cd.

Get yourself Acronis True Image and an external USB hard drive. You can then back-up your entire system, to the external drive in not time at all, and be assured of always having peace of mind.

agree Acronis is good but your pc should have come with instructions for creating the backup disk[s]. Your hard disk may have a hidden restore partition.
