Have you tried Safe mode?

If that dos'nt work, I would take the drive out & slave it to another comp & run as many infection scans as you can from that comp, then copy your files to whatever media you prefer.
Slave your HD to another HD/comp ( no need to bolt it in, just cable it & leave it outside the case ) You may have a choice of jumper settings on the master HD, such as master with slave or ms.
