So I was using CCleaner option to save HDD space, and when it "finished", my computer just went off. And now whenever I try to start it it shuts down with the Windows XP blue screen of death, even in Safe mode.

What's the safest approach to fix this while preserving the data in the hard drive? I know it's too much to ask, but I had some important stuff there.
