Windows 7: Question about Restoring from System Image?

Thanks for letting us know. I was not aware that MSE would do that - but then I use NIS2011. MSE played a few acts on me too, so I axed it.

I use Acronis True Image and MSE. No problems or conflicts.

I looked at the Macrium and wasn't impressed, even though it's "free".

Whs, can you answer a question regarding NIS2011 because I haven't dismissed it as an option.
Say I bought NIS and installed it and I need to reimage with an older image that didn't have NIS installed. Also assume I didn't have time to deactivate NIS. Could I just reinstall it?

I think you can do that after uninstalling the "other" AV program and installing NIS. It asks you right during the installation for the key. I have reactivated NIS many times. I use NIS since years - even during their "bad years". I have a 3 system license renewable every 3 years (it's cheaper). I threw in MSE because I have 6 systems. It is OK for my wife's systems because all she does is AOL and Word and all her files are on USB sticks (because we move between 3 locations without moving the systems). But for my systems, NIS does best.

Once you have the key, the direct download site is this:

http://www.norton.com/nis11

And year over year you can change the 11 to 12, 13, etc. That always worked for me and the same key always applies.

Btw: In case you do not remember, here are the AV uninstallers: AV Uninstallers

Thanks for all the Help guys i just restored my OS from the Image i had created and i must say windows 7 makes my life easy and for now im satisfied with how it restored though i agree that windows recovery does not show important options before starting recovery which should be available so the user can see what drives the image is going to restore
