Extremely slow boot-up/Crashes

Specs: Windows Vista Ultimate x64bit
So i recently tried installing windows update, it
said some sort of family .net work update.
anyways, at 84% my computer just froze up
and even trying to switch windows took nearly
15 mins. So i reset the computer and shut off
the power and when i turn it back on, it take
about 30 mins to even look at the vista logo
flashing. It take another 15 mins just to even
reach the desktop, whereupon it still takes
forever to do anything. I tried entering into safe
mode but for some reason it wont let me
anymore. I do want to reformat the computer
but i cant do so until i take out the important
files on it.
