Well, you certainly run the risk of backing up the virus along with your files. Why don't you post your virus problem here first and get it cleared up:

why won't my laptop work?

If you backup a virus, you've got a copy of the virus on your backup :huh:
But, you can scan your backup on a clean system (with updated antivirus software) to remove the infection.

If you're attempting to copy the entire hard drive that's a whole 'nother situation.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

You will also want to do a 'Clean' install.
