    I have two PCs,an older Pentium III with PATA HD, and a new PC with SATA. I've had the occasion to use TI8 and TI9 on both computers. I've restored the P3/Pata twice because of trojans( ^$%& NAV2005!), with no problems. I got one the frequent WinXP blu scrns of death on the new computer, only the last time. I couldn't reboot. I tried a restore TI9 2302, only to discover a corrupted backup. Luckily, I keep critical files/programs on DVD's, so no major problems on a manual format/restore, except 1 1/2 days involved. I'm convinced the combo of SATA HD/WinXP is very unstable.

    I have no problems on my system with 2 SATA drives. I restore images from one drive to the other when I need to get back to a known state.

    You mention BSODs.

    I have not seen a BSOD in ages with XP SP2.

    When I see someone who has frequent problems, I always ask what they have 'tweaked'. Are they overclocking? Have they found what is causing the BSOD (usually a driver, beta drivers at that).

    Before deciding that this or that tool has a problem, I'd suggest finding what is wrong with your systems, your tweaking, your drivers, or (for the trojans) the user.

    The way I read this (and others like it) is

    XP doesn't work
    Norton doesn't work.
    TrueImage doesn't work.

    I'd think that unlikely.
