Acronis and Norton Ghost are the best paid and as for free, I prefer clonezilla or Drive Image XML. Anything will do, just try a few out and see what you like. If you buy Acronis or Ghost, you will have free support but as for the free ones, you have to just mess with them. Once you start to check them out, make a thread and I will do my best to help you out with the one you choose.

I've had average results with both acronis and ghost. I do not remember if vista has full back ups but, you can check there. W7 has a great whole drive back up solution.
