My son managed to get a virus on his pc, it then infected both computers, I cleaned it off his, but when cleaning it of mine, it crashed 7 completely, I can't even restore it using the install disk. Is there any way to restore a 7 backup using XP? I am trying to avoid, reinstalling. I know I can restore the bkp, after the reinstall, I would just prefer to avoid the chance of things not linking back up completely, which is usually the case. All of my bkps are on an external hd, so I have no problem accessing them. The XP bkp program will not recognize them, is there any other way, a download 3rd-party or something?
