Or is there somewhere I can find such a thing?

backup will not create an image of the hard drive.

to do this you need to purchase something like drive image,ghost or acronis true image.

there was a full copy of acronis on last mths pca coverdisc

I was looking to install "clean up", and it recommends backing up the hard disk. Do I need an image of the hard drive for this?

just make a system restore point before installing any new software.

if it goes wrong then restore to before you installed it.

cleanup is a great wee program and i have had no problems with it.

an image of a fresh updated install of windows is very handy to have though.
