I just read over the forum and I have a question. My father's computer is past the point of return with viruses and spyware. However, there is vital info that he needs. I have ghost and was wondering if I copy his drive to another and reformat; what is the next step?

if you ghost the drive you'll also be ghosting the nasties....you could get an external drive and copy all his important documents over to that...or burn them on cds..or usb flash drives or something like that..then copy them back over after formatting and reinstalling.
