    First off, if your O/S is limping, you can't backup the applications and just restore them, they'll have to be re-installed on the fresh installation.

    My favorite way to backup such a system is to do a Norton GHOST image on another hard disk or partition, perhaps a USB drive. That way, when I install the new system, I can use GHOST Explorer to access any data files that were on the drive, and since I have everything, nothing gets left behind.
