Get a copy of Knoppix. Burn to CDR and then boot to it and use it to copy your music and pictures to and external or flash drive.

You will need a computer with fast internet and disk burning capability. Get Knoppix at the link below.
Get the file about 2/3 of the way down.

Knoppix V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso 94-Jan-2007 00:58 696M

could borrow a mates computor and put your hd in as slave
could start with a dos disk or win 98 floppy to comand prompt
type dir and rename your pictures folder and your music folder then try reloading windows onto the hdnot sure about win 2000 but on win xp when you reload windows it usually overwrites the document files ]

OTH has the right idea. A live version of many Linux distros will let you access your drive and move data around (including burning CD's/DVD's with K3b). Sounds like when you got the popup you actually downloaded the virus then (or shortly thereafter). But if you don't have the bandwith for Knoppix, there's a sub 100MB version of NimbleX that is also pretty handy as well:

There are some pop ups out there that will tell people they are infected. If it is not from your own anti virus program the pop up should be regarded as a malicious file.

Never go to their site and download the anti virus program the pop up is recommending.

I would try a "live cd" that has an antivirus program on it and give that a try.

It sound like your computer has a nasty file on it. It is possible that any computer you hook the hard drive up to that has a good antiviral program can scan and clean it up.
