    I have DenfseWall and Mamutu active,Also wwdc which is all disabled, Sandboxie Paid on demand. I am trailing Paragon Drive Backup 9. I have read that a Imaging App is the first defense, so I am wondering if there is anything else I need to be safe. I have Sp3 fully patched. Not sure if Paragon is what I want. Any others Imaging apps would be welcome

    I would recommend Acronis True Image. I've been using it for 3 years know, and it has bailed me out of a jam on several occasions. It's never failed me yet. I use Acronis True Image 11. I haven't used the latest version. I believe it is version 2009. http://www.acronis.com/

    I've read a lot about DriveSnapShot don't really know what is the best. I'm trying to see what is best for my machine and setup, I have seen where Easter has so many partitions just wondering how it is done

    All the imaging apps mentioned are good choices, you can choose the one you like.

    I would also suggest you add an AV.

    Macrium has a freeware which okay on XP http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.asp (I use Paragon by the way, got it as freebie with a magazine)

    Make sure to devide your drive into a C-drive where you instal programs and a D-drive where you put your data.

    I backup data with the freeby Syncback http://www.2brightsparks.com/downloads.html#freeware

    Buy an external harddrive, put it off line for most of the time (I have it stored elsewhere, just in case, I do not mind when burglars steal our PC, that is insured, I can never get my holiday photo's and movies back) and do monthly backups.

    With DefenseWall and Mamuto you are well protected.
