No, sorry. You cannot backup installed programs, per se. This is why you must install from a disk.
I had this happen to me recently also, and I ended up purchasing Paint Shop Pro v9 for only $29 USD from the manufacturer in on online download. That is pretty cheap, for two reasons: 1) they have come out with a newer version and 2) it was simply a download.
If you decide to go this way, first download the program to a place on your computer that you are familiar with, such as your desktop. Then once downloaded, copy the program and burn it to a CD. Then go ahead and double click the program to start installing it on your computer. This way you will still have a backup copy of the program on CD.
