Had another newbie crash and the techie was unable to recover the
Backups that I had so carefully made with WinXPHome NT Backup. Its
taken a lot of time for me to get my things reinstalled and running.

The techie recommended I should use Norton Ghost 9 in future and showed
me how simple it would be to use. It would give me a 'backup' on my
External F Drive.
So I bought it.

I now find I have to instal a .Net before I can use the program.
Where do I go to get .Net and is a download and instal as easy as he
said?

It all sounds complicated. Is this form of backup really sensible for
an old guy like me.

Ghost is a very good program for backup,
..Net, this is the .net framework which should be on the CD that ghost came
on,if not you can get it from windows update.
