Default Windows Xp Problem...need Help!!!!!

Ok I run windows xp but i run a dual boot partition set up wit ubantu. My problem is my computer has contracted some mean spyware or something and I cannot open any program what so ever I can start it up and boot up windows normally but after that nothing works. I just need to get a couple files off my computer before I do a complete system restore to factory settings. However, this is my question how?....I have my laptop networked with my home network however I do not think my wireless is starting up when i boot my laptop (the problem is i have now way to verify) please any suggestions I need help I do not care if your suggestion is extremely long nor tedious, I NEED THESE DOCUMENTS NOW. thank you all.

If you can boot into Ubuntu, then you should be able to mount the windows partition and copy your documents over.

He is correct, or you can boot into safe mode with networking and try to get your files or you can try to clean off the virus. What virus do you have btw?
