Ditto what Richard said about backups. I use Dropbox which duplicates and syncs files between two computers in my house and also stores everything “in the cloud”. There is a little setup required to make sure all your data files are kept within the Dropbox folder and subfolders, rather than at the folder locations used by application defaults. But after that, backup and synchronizing is essentially seamless. I keep the original application installation files, and data files, within Dropbox. There are other commercial products similar to Dropbox.

You could consider keeping your primary computer at home or in a similar friendly environment. Then keep one or two inexpensive laptops at your business, and access the primary via teamviewer or Microsoft Remote Desktop or similar. The computers at your shop would contain no business-application software or data files at all – they would essentially just be remote keyboards and monitors for the primary "real" machine.
