I do some work from home, and i need to keep it safe, esp if some1 trys to break into my house and steal my pc.

do a complete back up to a seperate hard drive and then set a password for access to pc which is highly unlikely to be accessed.

Put your hard drive into a removeable caddy, then take out the caddy and lock it into a safe when you leave home - or take it with you.

Otherwise, even if your data is encypted, if it's stolen, you've not even got it anymore.

suppose so, would it not just be easier to use an encryption program to encrypt the entire thing, so it wont even boot until i supply the password

Staganos Safe was on a PCA cover disk a while ago. click here

PGP click here and BestCrypt click here would also do what you require.
