Windows has something built in called Easy Transfer (actually I think it is built in to Vista, but you have to download it for XP).

Never used it, no idea if it is any good, but it is supposed to do what you want.

an update version of vista will do it but the programs may or may not be compatible, research each program you wish to keep for compatibility.

that is for transferring settings, not the actual programs.

upgrade is the way to go but tbh, I would just install a new OS clean and then re-install the vista compatible version of the programs.
