You could get an external HD and back everything onto it... or use a couple of flash drives, alternating between them.
I have not heard of any free on line back ups. Most run about $50-60 a year.

MS Sky Drive seems to be very reliable. (25 GB free)
Try the Gladinet interface.
Picasa has a very nice online photo album.
All external HDs will fail in time.

ya i tryed that....thats how i got viruses.....he went on "Runescape" and while he was on some pop ups came up, and that could have been the problom, if i make another acc i have to spend ALOT of time getting sites blocked(porn and stuff) and i have to make sure that there are no pop ups, i just uninstaled "windows steady state" and thats what im going to have to re-download if i want him to have his own acc(so i can block certen programs that will mess up my computer if he messes with them) and i dont want him to run ANY AV's.....and thats the other problom, the viruses were on HIS acc and AVG wouldnt let me clean them out unless i was on HIS acc....i couldnt use it on there so i was screwed. i also will not allow "runescape" on my computer anymore....so he wont get on unless its for school and stuff like that.
thanks anyways =) lol

I am talking about a dual boot....not 2 accounts
in other words he has a copy of windows to use and so do you.its like having 2 computers on one machine.

in other words he could hose windows on his side all he wanted
yours would not be harmed

format his in fat32 ,yours in ntfs..this way his side cant read or write to your side
