I thought I would ask this considering the level of response I had on
the last thread I started, in the hope that someone might suggest a

Thank you for all of your responses. I had decided to go with a new
installation of WinXP unless anyone had any further ideas, which I have

install has worked without incident.

There were one or two suggestions about taking t

There is a difference between asking for permission and possible liability. Once you take that data you take on the liability of protecting it. They can say you can image it, but that doesnt stop them from suing you if you allow it to be compromised.

Its just me but have you looked for rootkits?

remove sensitive data before imaging.

I am self-employed; fixing computers for customers for a living. I have
a customer's machine at home at the moment because I am stumped by a
problem on it.

I'll describe the history (AFAIK) up to this point - the customer was

via COM, but there are differences between Vista and XP with regards to that
