You can do that with either Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image.
Personally i use True Image to make daily images to a separate hard drive (you can't save them to the same drive you are imaging).
I would also download the following
AVG Free click here
Ad-Aware click here
SpywareBlaster click here
If you don't use Ghost or True Image learn how to use System Restore to make regular Restore points.
Learn to use your CD Writer to back up your files.
Learn how to keep your Anti virus and other security software up to date.
