    If this is a complete program you have saved on your hard drive then you can just write it to a disk as "Data". If you don't have the actual program (with setup.exe file) then no you can't back it up.

    If you have the original CD, then backing it up should be no problem. You generally cannot back up modern programs once they are installed, especially one that operates at the driver-level like anti-virus software: They also place files within the Windows directory and make essential registry modifications. So, as bbmayo pointed out, you'd need the setup data and thus the original disc.

    I have the original Panda Software Disc and want to make a Back-Up copy of it. The Panda program is currently what I use for Anti-Virus so now how do I go about Burning it from the Software Disc.

    Can I use ImgBurn or any of the other programs like DvdFab etc.

    Do you have Nero or Roxio if so put the disc in, but cancel the install open your burn program open up the source that should be your cd or dvd drive drag and drop all the files and burn baby burn. But if its a anti virus program its only good for a year or so it will time out and not do you any good. Check out A.V.G. they are free they update daliy I've used them for years never had a problem

    WHAT i would get is clonecd,a 21 day free trial as it will copy any cd-program or music cd in a heart beat.

    and while ye are at it look into anydvd and clonedvd both free to try for 21 days which will burn 99.9% of all dvd movies out..

    link to all the programs

    as i did answer your question,with clonecd..

    you need a program that will copy the cd and then burn it..

    nero,roxio and clonecd can do the job,

    i did not know what HotBurn was,so i checked it out
    TRY THAT ONE......
