Default Any experience with EaseUS PCTran?

Installation of the latest feature update on my laptop has failed too
many times to count. I have tried every troubleshooting step I could
find to no avail. It looks like a clean install is all I can do. (I
tried that already (with an image backup to undo it) and it installed
correctly.) I've been reading about PCTrans and wonder if it might solve
my problem. It is normally used to move everything to a new machine -
not how I want to use it. Instead, I would use it to create an image
file of my data files and installed apps, perform a clean install, and
then use it to restore everything. Does this seem feasible?

Wouldn't that scenario also restore the broken files, viruses, and other bad things, too?

That is exactly what I used it for. It took me three tries to get the
restore to work properly (documentation is pretty much non-existent),
but I was able to restore all my programs and data. About the only
work I had to do was to recreate desktop icons for some of the
programs.

Important: Have the PCTrans install file on the backup drive as you
will have to install it to do the restore. Also save in a text file
the registration data for PCTrans, so you can activate it.
