with celeron processor and 512 MB ram windows 7 takes too much time even to open a folder in windows explorer. I connect to internet with GPRS modem. When I tried to connect with remote linux machine with putty ssh client.

The problem is the putty becomes Not responding in 2 or 3 minutes. I've to connect again and putty goes Not responding again.

When i tried in Safe mode with networking, GPRS modem is not even detected. the modem is USB data card.

Is it possible load USB drive in safe mode of windows 7 or any other possibility to connect with remote machine via ssh

Your system does not meet the requirements for Windows 7. –  Ramhound Sep 20 '12 at 14:39

celeron processor and 512 MB ram windows 7

Microsoft says that Win7 needs at least 1 GB RAM. Personally I would not even try with less than two.

internet with GPRS modem

Ouch. GPRS can have huge roundtrip times if not 3G. Try to ping the linux server when putty gets unresponsive. A likely cause would be big downloads like Windows Update etc. These can use up to 100% of a slow internet pipe so there is no "room" for your SSH or ping packets to arrive in a timely manner.

any other possibility to connect with remote machine via ssh

A Linux based OS would be a possible alternative.
