You're welcome. It sounds like you have given this some thought already, which is good, so perhaps my advice wasn't needed. But just in case you hadn't (or someone else reading this hadn't) I wanted to mention it.

I don't actually use any. I suppose I should, or at least look into various packages. I guess I just soured on back-up utilities when I first started using Windows NT about seven years ago. At the time, the utilities would claim to be able to restore the system, registry, etc., but when I practiced with them, they never actually did the job right. I would have to reinstall the system anyway.
Because of this, I ended up adopting the strategy of making manual back-ups of my data files and program installation files. I figure if the system crashes as a whole I will have to rebuild it anyway, so protecting my data files alone is sufficient.
Presumably things have gotten better since then. If Genie Backup Manager truly does back up (and properly recover) Windows related files and settings for Outlook Express, Favorites, Windows settings, Internet Explorer etc., then that sounds great for you. Many people also use Norton's Ghost product to back up the system. One nice thing about it is that you can quickly recover everything to a point in time when you made the image, without even needing a boot disk.
Concerning our Swedish nights (yes _nights_
so have they started to getting longer and longer the last couple of weeks.
Yes, autumn is rapidly approaching. I can't believe it...
So we also got a so called night here alright.
I know, I was just joking with you.
And, of course, you pay for the long summer days with long winter nights. Nothing is ever a free ride, right?
