Do you have a spare hard drive?  If not you can pick
up a 40 gig for cheap.  Put that one in as your C: and
install windows on that drive.  Then connect the
original C: as a slave and pull the files off of there
that you need, burn them to DVD (or cd).  Then format
your slave drive and put everything back on there that
you want.  Use your new smaller drive for windows and
programs, and your old C: for personal files.  Keep
everythign backed up.  Then if windows funks up again
you can wipe your C: with no fear.
