    What's the best way to get rid of the dust in a tower - is there any risk if I carefully use a (small?) vacuum-cleaner?

    Household vacuum cleaners (even small ones) generate a lot of static electricity. You'd be much better off getting a can of air spray and blowing the dust off rather than risking it.

    One time, I ran the vacuum cleaner hand tube thing over the top of a CRT monitor and it EXPLODED.

    Well, kinda. It made a bang and smoke came out and made a horrible smell and I ran outside into the garden, crying.

    Just use a dry cloth!

    No, whilst in the bath.
