I have always been reluctant to use the computer while it is backing up. Is there any reason not to use Windows multitasking during a backup?

You can continue to use the PC as usual while it is backing up; changes made after starting the backup are ignored, so you cannot make a mess of things. A snapshot of the drive is created before running the backup so Acronis knows what has to be backed-up.
