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.

: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.
