Interesting problem...

I am currently being helped with an infection on another forum, but at one point I was considering a re-install of Windows XP as a last resort. However, that would mean losing some important pics and emails because I can't copy and paste anything, so I was reluctant to do that. Then I read about how creating a Linux boot disc could allow me to access the Windows files and drag them onto a memory stick. This seemed like a life saver until I remembered that my internal DVD/CD writer is broken, so I couldn't use the Linux boot disc in that. I don't get the option in BIOS boot priorities to boot from USB (it's an old laptop), so does anyone know how I could access the Linux OS once Windows has been started? I know nothing about Linux or runing 2 OS's together - I'm a simple XP man!
