I was working with the guys at spyware warrior and they have deemed my HDD clean and clear of infection. They suggested that I wipe my brand new seagate 1TB drive that I just ghosted my old drive to and installed. I don't want to have to start over from scratch. In fact I don't even know where all of the .exe setup files are for most of my favorite programs are, let alone most of my user id's and passwords that are saved for the majority of my favorite sites. Is it possible to reinstall windows and save ALL of my info that I just spoke of from a FULL windows backup .BKF file I created just before my old HDD crashed? I know it was clean and deemed infection free before I created it, that's why I made it then. My problem is i don't have the first clue as to where to begin let alone complete a project like this. Does a FULL Backup save EVERYTHING? is it worth trying to do? In other words will it re install my OS along with ALL my favorite programs, id's, and passwords. Or should I just give up and start over from scratch and loose ALL my favorite info? The problem with that is I don't have a restore disk or a copy of XP to re-install if I had to. PLEASE HELP!!! I'm desperate!!!
