If you get a external HDD, it is well worth the money, you wont be worried about loosing all your data. If its all on one HDD in your comp, and your comp dies, then you are SOL (&*%$ Out of Luck)
Cheers for the link, I do mess around with paint programs when I get the chance, I use to use them to make icons and some wallpapers and occasionally edit an .msstyle I find on deviantart (rather than standard aero msstyles!)
The original installed OS was Vista (no comment) so all I have is my Windows 7 disc and I have been looking into getting an external HDD for the past month as I move a lot and loads of discs would murder the space in my bags!
I do, however, keep original setup programs that I like on memory sticks in case of emergencies.
I even use the Windows Live Skydrive to save a lot of documents and pictures, videos and music I couldn't live without

Update on the virus situation;
I've been running TrendMicro's HouseCall program and, it has found, so far found 33 Rootkits and 1 more trojan.
When it comes to MSE scanning beforehand, it picked up nothing and the same with June's MSRT which said my computer was clean.
When HouseCall spotted the trojan, MSE alerted me to say it found two trojans where HouseCall was scanning.
MSE automatically removed the trojans after 10 minutes while I was waiting for HouseCall to finish its scan (I didn't want HouseCall to have an error trying to remove them after MSE had cleaned them) so I will be trying several more standalone scanners to see if the problem/s really been dealt with!

Rootkits are serious and often very difficult to git rid off. If I had 33 rootkits, I would format and do a clean install.

I was about to but, its only this Malware bytes program that spotted them MSE continually says everything's fine and, I've tested to see if it picks up any more and it has done every time, I will do a clean install but at the moment I need to back up my media otherwise I'll lose way too much!

Certainly you should save your files; but be sure to scan them once you have them backed up.

Yeah no problem, i constantly update Mbam and MSE and run scans whenever possible but the next time I do I'll get a log of the scans

Oh I definitely will be scanning them before any backup. I have SUPERantispyware and Malware Bytes which are all set to manual so there shouldn't be any conflict between them and MSE.
Hopefully this month's MRT will be available to give my laptop the once over as well!
