Windows 7: Question about windows 7 extended support and updates

An ISO file is a compressed file of the OS that you use to burn the OS to disk.
My Win7 Ultimate x64 with all the updates that I selected is 4.55 gig.
It is easy and faster to use a USB drive of 8 or 16 gig than to use disk.
Since October MS have offered the "Security Monthly Quality Rollup"
I don't install them I hide them.
I do install the "Security Only Monthly Rollup" You have to download these manually (look in the news sector here and Brink will direct you to them).
I.E. 11 works fine and is more secure as it is supported, I guess you have other issues.
Yes, if you take an image or clone your disks or partition you will save everything including drivers with the OS and all data.
An image is a compressed copy of what you have backed up and a clone is an uncompressed copy.
Macrium Reflect free is what is recommended here the most. You need study this as it is invaluable to us PC heads.
Just remember that the copy of your data you make today will be AS today and if you re-install it 6 months from now then anything you have installed since will be gone so you need to take backups regular.
