You could also place copies on a CD.

Keep in mind they are frequently updated to newer versions in order to patch vulnerabilities and your saved backup will then be outdated. There are serious security issues with older software which can increase the risk of system infection. Infections spread by malware writers and attackers exploiting unpatched security holes or vulnerabilities in older versions. Software applications and browsers are a favored target of malware writers who continue to exploit coding and design vulnerabilities with increasing aggressiveness.

The majority of computers get infected from visiting a specially crafted webpage that exploits one or multiple software vulnerabilities. It could be by clicking a link within an email or simply browsing the net, and it happens silently without any user interaction whatsoever.

Web Exploits

Exploit kits are a type of malicious toolkit used to exploit security holes found in software applications...for the purpose of spreading malware. These kits come with pre-written exploit code and target users running insecure or outdated software applications on their computers.
