Stupid question:

 

We have a laptop that needs to have everything wiped.  It's full of viruses and overwhelmed with programs.  It also has some family photos on it that are not saved elsewhere.  The computer place will back them up for $50 or so.

I have an external HD and can save the pics to it myself and save myself some money.  However, I have no idea if the viruses in the laptop would infect the HD.  Is that possible? 


TIA

Heya Gideon.

I am hoping you can help me with this PC problem.

I finally got my new laptop and it's awesome, but it has recently started doing this annoying thing.  Sometimes it throws out this "Internet Explorer has encountered a promblem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience." message.  It's always when I have opened on a browser window, like if there are thumbnails for a pic and I click on the pic, it will open the pic then throw out that message.  ...

This is probably an exceedingly stupid question, but here goes...

I have tons of pics on my computer that I'd like to burn to a disk so that I'll have them in case my computer ever crashes.

I may have even done this before, I can't remember, but I'm too lazy to play around and try to figure out how to do it.

A really simple, step-by-step, for-dummies type answer would be appreciated.

Thanks!
