oh yeah, sorry bout that, have had a lot on my mind lately
well, i suggest you copy the files you need to a cd/dvd. if you want to backup a complete OS, use ghost to create an image, and put that image on the cd/dvd.
you can always do a virusscan on the files before you back them up. but copying a file won't activate a virus, only running it, so you should be save if you copied them.
