I have got a Hard drive backup on an external hard drive. I understand this is only all my files and data. I purchased my computer (running Vista Home Premium), from PC World with the operating system already installed. I have an file that would allow me to take all my settings back to "Factory Settings". BUT, I have a system set that has my wife's Laptop, wireless to the router for emails/internet, and to my computer for Printing. All set up by a Computer Consultant at the time of purchasing. If I had the worse scenario of a computer crash and I need to either wipe clean my C-Drive. Is there a way I could back up my comoputer settings as described above, so that if I needed to reset my computer to the factory settings, I could then install these specific settings afterwards. I hope I have explained clearly what I want to do. I ask this as the computer consultant had lots of visits to eventually get the set up to work. So I want to be able to install these specific settings for our joint usage should anything happen, or, I buy a new computer. !!! Help Please. Cheers.
