    You could burn all your files to a DVD yes, or you could just try running virus scans and fixing your computer. If you have too much stuff to store on discs, you could buy an external hard drive and save everything on that. That's what I would suggest doing.

    Doing what? If you buy an external hard drive you just plug it in then copy all your stuff to the hard drive. Then when your computers are fixed you copy the stuff off the hard drive back onto your computer.
