It is a mess

You must backup all your personal files, format your Hard Drive, then do a fresh install of what ever Operating System you have.
Can you login into Windows at all?
If not then at what point does your computer reboot when booting up? The Windows XP Loading Screen?

I think your best (and safest) bet for getting the data is to yank the hard drive and put it in a caddy attached to another computer. If the data is still on the drive, then you *should* be able to access it from there.

A more detailed explanation on how to do this can be found here.
If you don't want to do that, you can always buy a Hard Driver Adapter, so it will make your Hard Drive external.
After you extract the data you want, please scan it with a virus scanner to make sure no bad remnants of viruses or malware was left on any of your files.
When done with that, go on with installing XP Pro, but remember to format everything so that your installation doesn't get corrupted.
