I have an Emachine the mother board is fried, but the hard drive is still in tact. If I re-load windows as a repair with the old hard drive in a new computer will I be able to keep all of my software in tact.

it's possible...but it alot of times it doesn't work...the standard theory is that you put the drive into the new pc as master...then IMMIDIATELY boot to the xp cd and preform the repair install...like i said...sometimes this doesn't work...but sometimes it does
