    So I am thinking of making a reliable backup image of my current system.
    So i am looking into what security software scans I could run to fairly certainly assure me that my Win7 64bit system is clean before performing a reliable fall back, backup?

    Scan with a couple of bootable Antivirus Rescue CD's.

    1. AVIRA Rescue System
    2. Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10

    Scan from Safe Mode:

    1. Dr.Web Cureit
    2. Hitman Pro (Requires an Internet connection since it is "cloud" based.)
    3. Emsisoft Emergency Kit
