    I think, there is no need to back up the apps as they are stored as installed/noninstalled on your live-ID on your store. You find all apps when you use the same ID for several machines. It is very easy to install them again straight out of the "your apps" folder in store.

    @win_seven, Paul Desmond
    thanks for your replies.
    I want to make a backup of the apps downloaded from store because whenever i will format my pc i will lose my apps and have to redownload it and i or whoever do it, it will lead to loss of money as well as bandwidth.In many parts of the world the internet connection is very costly and of poor quality like india (i am from india), so suggest some ways to do the above task so that everyone can save money as we dont have to download the apps every time we format.
    Now about the activator i think first you should try it.You can find it on any torrent site,it is of about 51 mb in size ,so go for it.I used it and it worked perfectly.
