I have recently purchased Acronis True Image Home version 10.0 (build 4,871). After performing a full image backup I have the following problems: When the Backup operation has completed, and I try to shutdown my PC several programs have to be shutdown manually. When trying to start up my PC in the morning (when a True Image Backup was the last thing I did before shutting down) my PC failed to boot properly. I have to bring my PC up in SAFE mode first and then shutdown. After this process, I was able to boot my PC normally. Has anyone else had similar problems, and if so, what did you do to remedy the situation? Honestly, if Acronis backup software destabilises my PC and leaves me feeling very much less secure, then this is a Major problem. My system is a Dell XPS running Windows XP Pro SP2. I also use Windows defender, Trend PC-Cillan 14, IIS, and have windows SQL server 2000 & 2005 running on my PC.
