    Am I able make a copy of the complete Windows user account; so that when I do
    a clean install I can restore the account to its previous state? Is creating
    the exact user name and account type sufficient, or is there other
    information needed? How do I do this, I am running XP Home Edition on a 32
    bit machine.

    How can I use Windows XP's Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to export my
    files and settings?
