Virus Problem

I believe I have a virus on my PC. There were 100's up popups all over my screen. The day prior I had removed Norton Internet Security, installed Zone Alarm.. and had intended to return the following day and install Avast. but.. unfortunately I didn't get to before this happened.

I'm able to boot up in safe mode and tried a system restore to the prior day (to the problem) but upon rebooting my screen went black after the windows loading screen. Now, I guess system restore doesn't solve problems like this, but in the past it'd fixed anything I'd done before.

Rebooted again into safe mode and all my files are there. Is there a way to copy files in safe mode to dvd or cd? or fix the problem?

If I have to reinstall the OS, I must retrieve some pictures that hadn't been backed up.

Any advice or assistance would be appreciated.

Yes, I read that earlier, but stopped when I saw it requires internet access. I have no display after windows load screen in regular mode, so I can't do anything.

How can I follow those steps in safe mode?

I found this on the microsoft site, and wonder if these are the steps I might need to check first?
