    I have a computer so infested with malware I can't do much with it.

    I want to back up my PC using Acronis TI9 bootable CD since m Windows Xp barely works.

    However, here are my problems:

    1. Acronis won't let me save my destination .tib file over the network to another computer. Is it supposed to? I can see the other computers just fine from the bootable rescue menu. Permissions seem to be set correctly. Before I spend any more time on this am I supposed to be able to save over the network?

    2. I have a Rev drive connected to another computer. It seems to have a lot of problems with the Rev as well. Is the Linux bootable rescue media disk supposed to have a built in driver for Iomega Rev support?

    1. Yes
    2. Don't know. Iomega Rev drives had some trouble reported in the past but I don't know the current status for them.

    I cannot see the point in backing up a computer that is badly infested with malware. All that would do is to spread the malware to other media.

    There are a whole host of removal and clean up tools out there that can be very effective in ridding your computer of pests. These can be doubly or more effective when run in Windows safe mode.

    So do a bit of house keeping first maybe combined with a SFS /SCANNOW a repair install and CHKDSK for good measure.
