    ^+1. People who wrote those stuff are really creative and will do anything to cause harm on a computer.
  3. Yes they are good at wiping your boot files.
  4. Make sure you have a good anti-virus and firewall program to help block some of the bad stuff. Christop is right they are very clever at damaging your boot files.
  5. :heink: I image drive C:\ and paste the image files to drive D:\. Normally the 100 MB Boot partition is invisible to Windows.

    If you browse a Widows 7 system HD attached as secondary HD you will see it.
    I use BootitNG and it sees everthing!

    With Win 7, I keep it simple by imaging C:\ alone.
    I don't bother to image the 100 MB boot partition (system reserve).
    because it is very unlikely that a virus can alter this partition.
