Syler from the Highjack team helped me out and got me all cleaned up. I'd like to make sure everything I have now is all backed up. As well, I often read about making a bootable disk in case you have a crash. Any pointers would be appreciated...im a rookie.

What version of XP (Home or Pro)? Pro has a tool for back-ups...Home doesn't...A lot of people use a program such as Acronis to back-up an image of their Operating System for restoration...Never used it personally....Bootable disks can be of help on systems that won't boot into Windows but you will also need your XP CD for some of the files...They can be used to get windows to open but they won't do much for restoration...Another option is to set restore points religiously...In the event that something happens you can revert back to an earlier time to fix things that are happening now...Another thing is to use " Last known Good Configuration" boot option to fix problems that cause windows not to open...

If you have XP Pro you can use the Control Panel> Performance and Maintenance> Back-up Wizard for backing things up...Backup to an external drive or flash stick...
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
