Unfortunately, no, no such software exists, uness you count disk imaging applications like Norton Ghost or Acronis True image. But those make backups of the entire hard disk, including operating system, so will not do for you.

The only real advice I can give is to either continue as you are and reload all your software each time you reload a new build of Windows 7, or don't jump on the bandwagon whenever there is a new build is leaked and therefore stick to the one you have....

I'm still running the original official BETA release, build 7000. I'm waiting for Microsoft to officially release the RC before I reload the whole system and associated software.

Much less troublesome...

Just upgrade windows 7? No need for a clean install.

I think the reason why you can't do what you ask is that the registery and all the settings of the OS on your hard drive will be different when you transfer an installed program from one OS to another,

I remember once I installed windows XP on my backup hard drive on my desktop, booting with that OS, I tried running programs that were installed on my old drive with XP too, but there were tons of errors during startup of the softwares and almost all of them will not start!

Some softwares can be installed on a USB stick, these are mainly smaller programs such as Bitcomet for example.

Thank you for your replies .
There are too many things that we say "impossible" for software. But one day we see them. I hope we will see
So another question is there any easy way to make unattended softwares. For example when i'm installing photoshop i only install 5 component from ful list(adobe master). I don't want to enter serial choose bla bla . I want everything to be faster. Do you know a way for them
PS: I know there are complicated thing i need easier

You could just save all your serials in a doc and then when you are installing them you can just copy and paste, that should save you a bit of time.

I save my dowloaded programs to C:\Downloads ... then just copy them to a CD. You can click on the executable setup and install it again.
This really helps with things like Java. You only need to download it on one machine, copy it, then install it on your other computers.
