  1. I am having problems with Acronis True Image 2009 Home. I had the free trial version & used it while I waited for the full CD version to arrive. Somehow i filled up the external HD with backups - I think I should have used incremental backup after the first complete backup.
    I uninstalled acronis using windows XP home sv3 add/remove from the conrtol panel. I formatted the external HD from the DOS prompt since Acronis seemed unable to delete content. when I installed from the CD all went well until I tried to use Acronis the next day. Since then it just hangs - shows as "processing" in its start up box but task manager shows as not responding. Do I really have to follow three pages of manual registry entry removals or is ther a simpler way to cleanly uninstall this malfunctioning application?
