    Just so you're aware, if you literally ghost your laptop, when you restore the ghost image the laptop will be exactly the same as it was before.

    If you actually need to fix things and/or discard garbage files that you can't track down manually, then you need to copy (not ghost, just copy) your documents and whatever other files you want to keep onto an external hard drive, then you need to reinstall Windows and all your other programs.
