Generally, U backup data files (word, music, etc) and save the disks that install programs. There are too many "backup" programs to give details on how to operate them. The biggest issue when dealing with backups is that programs have to be installed to the register and many backup programs cannot or will-not reinstall a program to the register.

Whats the best way to transfer my infomation and programs to a newer computer

For content, if you don't want to transfer it all to a flash drive and then transfer it to the new machine, register for an account at any (or all, your choice) of the following sites:
Dropbox (2GB free) (15GB free)
Welcome to OneDrive (15-23GB free)
Once the programs of your choice are downloaded and installed, use them to back up your personal files to the internet. Then, on the new computer, install the programs and allow them to sync. This will download them from the internet. Move the files out of the folders to free up space, wait for the removal to sync to the old computer, and go back to the old computer to move more in to be moved over. Repeat this as much as needed to have all of your files moved over.
For programs, transfer any installation files you still have (the program you download and then click to install) through the cloud storage programs from above that you choose, then use these .exe files to install to the new laptop. If you don't have the .exe files lying around, then you can either hunt them down individually on the new computer (in which case, make a list from your old computer) or use a service like
Ninite Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once (it's free, by the way) to mass download/install most common programs so that you don't have to go hunting for them.
For programs that were installed via disc, you're probably just going to have to install those on the new machine the old fashioned way. You cannot just copy/paste program folders (though it's tempting) because installing programs writes values to your computer's registry, which cannot be transferred and certainly don't tag along with the program files installed on the computer. These registry values are what tell the computer how to handle that installation, so while some programs MIGHT work, most will not work well or at all without.
Hope this helped!

I bought a new PC with windows 7. after it was hooked up I went on Mozilla Firefox, my internet browser and all my previous bookmarked web pages are missing. does anyone know how I can get them back?

Use the Windows Easy Transfer utility on 7 to move your settings/files to a flash drive. Start the program on the new one, insert the flash drive and follow instructions.

You shouldn't have lost anything unless you deleted it. Just by moving the computer will not lose any programs.

About virus disinfection

Yes it can but you have to know which files are virus files and which files are not. Since this is practically impossible to know each and every file, it is best to use an antivirus because it's been programmed with all the virus files already so you don't have to guess. That being said, look for files with seemingly random names and recent dates. When in doubt, you can google search a filename to determine if anyone has flagged it as a potentially unwanted program. This method is not 100% nor is it recommended; deleting the wrong file can cause your computer not to boot up.
