when u read the description of this topic and saw it read 'Overwrite" u might be like thts wht u are suppose to do when u restore...
well i have seen thousands of videos on how to restore USING MACRIUM REFLECT FREE but they tend to goof around with other partitions which i dont know y but they do... i only have one partition and I DO NOT WANT IT SPLIT ANY HHD VIRTUALY OR MAKE ANY PARTITION SMALL IN SIZE... I just want to simply overwrite my WHOLE hard drive with another image i took of my WHOLE hard drive last novemberish with Macrium. I want to restore it because of my computer being slow and i see malware traces which even rkill cant seem to shut down permanently... i got a hp windows xp sp 3 desktop very old but still working :thumbup2:

I am asking this question here and not on their support page because they dont let u ask if u have the free edition *cough* profit *cough* (sigh some people are just not friendly like the bleeping computer community :thumbsup: )

-and please it would be nice to get a reply from someone who used this program before and btw i cant make another image using a different program because my hhd is already acting stupid and i dont want a image of the bleep its now in lol-

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Please do not type in shorthand. We have many visually impaired people on the forum that use text readers. As well as our foreign language friends that will be confused by it.
Please write in complete sentences.

What is the make/model of the system?
What guarantee do you have that you simply wont put the problem right back out there again?

Is a clean install an option?
That is what I would do.
In the beginning there was the command line.

When you restore the image you will be asked to where you want to restore it. Just choose c: drive (which I assume is the designation of the drive you want to overwrite).

Looking at the Macrium Reflect GUI it looks very straight forward.
If you imaged your entire drive, then when you click on restore image you
would be offered to restore entire drive.
You can also choose to restore just one or more partitions.
Here is what I am going by: [Need Info] How to Restore Image using Macrium Reflect - Software | DSLReports Forums

A friendly reminder---immediately update Windows, Flash, Adobe Reader and Java. Those are the most vulnerable to malware.
