Have someone burn you a copy of knoppix. You can use that to boot and then copy your important files (Documents & Settings folder, things like quicken might store their data in their own folder) to another hard drive (get an external usb one for backups anyway)
The reinstall the os. you can copy stuff back at your leisure.
I might try this...
