There is a software on the market called Acronis True image, this software will help you make a complete ghost of your existing installation and put that ghost/image onto another harddrive, this can then be copied back to your original harddrive should you have a problem like a virus or Windows update problem.
Here is a link to the 15 day free trial:
http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/download/trueimage/
You will obviously need to purchase it if you need to make the recovery after the 15 days.
Another way of doing it is to buy an Apricorn external harddrive housing, this housing doesn't come with a harddrive you choose your own to go in it, but, it comes with EZgig which is essentially Acronis True Image in disguise.
The idea of the Apricorn housings was to upgrade your existing laptop harddrive but now I use them as just ordinary external harddrives.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602
Apricorn make many different enclosures, this one is just small enough to fit in your laptop case and only requires USB to make it work, you can use an external power supply with it as obviously with no external power it will run your laptop battery down quite quickly.

    The idea is to make the ghost image before you have the problem, that way instaed of going through the long drawn out proccess of reinstalling windows you just format the harddrive with the problem and copy the good image back.

Start menu.... programs.... look in there for the brand of computer you have or just tools.... create restore disks is what you need to do.... if you should lose your factory image or just need to restore the system and can't boot into the operating system to restore.. use them.

    for that last suggestion about acronis... if the problem is a virus and you make a ghost image and reuse it... seems to me you are just copying the virus as well and transferring it. correct me if i'm wrong.

Hi,
I assume you are using the Vista disk that came in with the system. Even though you can see a product key on your friends computer, It would not work on your own computer because that product key is intended only for that DELL computer. The windows Vista that your friend has is an OEM copy of the operating system. The product key should match the Hardware of the OEM computer for it to work.
I suggest you get a genuine copy of the operating system for your self.
Hope this helps.

My hp, windows Vista will not copy to my lexmark all in one


http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:438:0:0

I know you said you have the latest drivers but just confirm you do with that link, I checked the compatibility and it is good with Vista so you should not be experiencing any issues. Try doing a complete uninstall and printer reset then running that downloaded driver, only plug in the printer to the computer when requested.

Not possible xp installation


How to Downgrade Vista to XP Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP is almost like installing Windows XP for the first time. You should take all the normal precautions like backing up all your important files and record important passwords in a different place, preferably on a CD. When you downgrade from Windows Vista to XP, note that Windows Vista will be completely removed from your system.
(Note: There is a way to have both Vista and XP in a dual boot configuration, but that's an option for more advanced users. See Dual Booting Vista and XP for more info on that.)
Before you begin the XP installation, make sure that the necessary XP hardware drivers are available, or included on the XP disk provided by your PC vendor. If in doubt, check the vendor's website or poke around with your favorite search engine to see if others have attempted the XP install on the same hardware. You may be able to install XP without all the needed drivers, but some hardware may not work afterwards.
Also, make sure that you have a genuine Windows XP CD before you begin the downgrade. Be sure to read the section earlier in this article to see if you qualify for a low/no cost XP recovery disk from your PC vendor. If not, perhaps you have an XP disc that came with another computer. If you've upgraded an existing computer from XP to Vista, the best choice would be the XP install/recovery disc that came with that computer. One some PC's the vendor doesn't ship a CD, but the recovery CD can be created from disk images on the hard drive. If all else fails, you can always buy a copy of Windows XP on Ebay. Just be sure it's a legal, licensed copy.
Follow these steps to install Windows XP on your Vista machine:
  • Insert your Windows XP install/recovery CD and restart your computer.
  • Install Windows XP normally, providing either the product key that came with the disk, or the one you got from Microsoft customer support. If the installer warns you that another copy of Windows is already installed, don't worry. Remember, this install will wipe out your existing Vista installation.
  • Activate your copy of Windows XP when it prompts you to do so. If you run into the "already activated" problem, you can use the option to activate by phone.
  • If you own Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, explain to the rep that you want to use your Downgrade Rights to install XP Pro.
  • If you own Vista Home Basic/Premium, or you are installing XP Home Edition, don't mention ANYTHING about Vista. Just give the rep your XP product key (not the Vista key), explain that you are installing XP on a new hard drive, and tell them you need to activate.
