You will need to stop SHOUTING. ALL CAPS is the best way to get ignored or mocked on any forum. :)

That being said, you can use the System Restore utility, which is on by default. If your system becomes infected, go to System Restore and restore the system from a time before the system became infected.

If you want to "ghost", you will need to buy a Symantec Norton product with Norton Ghost included.

Does this help?

was fairly good advice although if your system gets infecred by a virus it not sufficient just to do a system restore, as many viruses "live" in the master boot record they can easily be reproduced when you reboot the system.
If you want to protect your computer from a fatal attack you will need to back up regulary with somethinglike Norton Ghost, I think you can now do this also with Norton 360 which includes virus and spyware protection and many other features as well as a backup facility.
You will also need somewhere to back up to, for example a second drive fitted to the system or an external drive, I believe with Norton 360 you can back up online to a Norton server if you want.

Yep, or Fdisk /MBR

Fix MBR also available booting from install/recovery/boot disks.

I personally never bother with the stuff. I back up my personal data, and keep my install disks handy.

Good advices, tintoman.

Norton 360 ... backup!

by Absolutely In reply to The last post

You can use Norton 360 to backup a couple gigs of data, online or on local media. It does not do operating system images, at all, but it does require removal of previous versions of Ghost. Brilliant!
