I don't image my data. It is backed up on multiple drives using the Power Desk synchronize function. Similar to SyncToy.

I don't use Windows libraries, and ignore them. I point data to my data drive. Of course I have my own "libraries" there, using the directory structures as I see fit. Application settings are saved...

Some here swear by W7 backup, and know about shadow volumes - or whatever it is - and should be able to help.
I'm sure they can help you to get your image recognized.

Nope, haven't had any of the listed issues. Thoroughly enjoying it. Almost completed. I did see a glitching Yak today, for the first time. I couldn't kill and skin it, so I just went around it. ...

I've turned more into an RPG guy myself. I love the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series. Not an E.A. fan but they did these titles right. Also a big fan of Oblivion and Skyrim.

I don't recall having any "issues" with Far Cry 3. Maybe it didn't alt-tab well. Far Cry 4 goes into windowed mode sometimes when I alt-tab. Minor hassle resetting it to full screen. Many games don't...

The Saboteur, Far Cry 3 & 4, Watchdogs, Hitman Absolution. Assassin's Creed: Black Flag were all good.

Made it to Chapter 10, then put it on god mode to finish. Easy decision, since I could never finish it otherwise.

Pretty sure some bosses are scripted to not die until they've chased you around and around. Might be wrong about that, but looks that way. There's a guy playing on Akumu mode with no upgrades, and I...

I've watched hours of gameplay on Twitch, and it's not an "easy" game. The bosses take strategy and good control of movement to beat. It's not for everybody. Not sure I want the torture.

Pehcnijlfx.exe

It's placed in C:\Users\pcname\AppData\LocalLow\Conduit\xbpkyzj\uzhrqtd.
This runs in 3-4 instances, per Task Manager. Can't kill - it regenerates. Brings web browsing to a crawl.

Easiest way is to uninstall and reinstall to the new drive. But if you're handy with editing the registry, it's no big deal.

Maybe. But keeping your image size down is easy - if you have a second drive.
I can restore an image in about 6-7 minutes total time using the CD to boot up Ghost.
I've done the same with Macrium,...

I found Windows 7 images lacking in portability. I use Norton Ghost 15, but found Macrium works too, if a bit slower.

As long as you clear a 30-40 yard retreat space you can still snipe. Pretty boring waiting for the all clear though.

I don't use Macrium (still with Ghost 15) but that's not a flaw with Macrium. To me, anyway.
It's caused either by a change in the VSS snapshot, which is taken taken before imaging begins, or...

Best advice yet.
Unless you "just want to do it" there's not much sense in building a low end PC.
