You need some imaging software, like Acronis or Ghost

But if you look here http://www.techsupportalert.com/bes...
for freeware.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

You ought to make a boot disk for windows 7 or a boot usb. All sorts of instructions on how to do it and you may be able to download or make the files.

I'd then make a windows 7 backup of the system to some usb or networked drive.

But as above one can make an image from any number of ways from ghost (now windows backup) to acronis (which is basically dd) or specialty cd's like clonezilla and g4u.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

No need to for any third party applications. Windows 7 has built in utilities to make a system repair DVD which is bootable and a disk image as well as backups of individual files.

Control Panel > Backup and Restore. Everything you need is there.

You do this while everything is working fine. After the event is to late.

As #4, Use Windows back up, make Repair DVD to boot to to make repairs or load an image from back up. Then make a drive image and a separate back up of your files to an external hard drive. Then make a password recovery disk to a flash drive or CD so you are never locked out. Finally, periodically update these back ups.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Genie backup is a backup (copy) of files, it is not the same as creating an Image. An image will allow you to reinstall the Operating system, exactly the same as when the image was created.

I would expect windows would be bigger than 4GB. Thats why nowdays, most people create an image to a usb drive. Because not all pc's can boot from usb, programs like ghost Acronis & Easus To do allow you to create a bootable cd, to access the usb where you have your image.

USE Windows back up feature!!
Make a bootable Repair Disk (DVD) which will allow you to boot to repair console and allow you to do a Start up Repair, A System Restore, or Reload your System from an Image you Saved already using the back up system.
Make a System Image, this is best saved to an external hard drive, but it will let you save it to multiple DVD's if that is all you have or prefer.
Make a periodic normal back up of your files and these back ups can be saved to an external hard drive or to one or more DVD's as well. These back ups will allow you to restore all of your personal files and settings or just a portion or a particular folder. This would be done with Windows already working.
Windows 7 Repair, Back up, and Restore features work well, work together, and you do not need to purchase anything except blank DVD's and preferably an external drive. Nothing else is needed!!! AND it is supported by Microsoft AND your system manufacturer if you need help (as well as here).

To reiterate what fingers says, you can use Windows backup.

There are plenty of free backup & imaging programs.
