If you do you can use it to restore missing or corrupted system files or perform a repair installation.
First you need to backup files that you don't want to loose:
You can use an op system like Puppy Linux to backup your documents and pictures to cds or another drive if you have one.
Get Puppy Linux here. It runs in RAM or from the CD so it does not need to be installed:
" * Puppy will easily install to USB, Zip or hard drive media.
* Booting from CD, Puppy will load totally into RAM so that the CD drive is then free for other purposes.
* Booting from CD, Puppy can save everything back to the CD, no need for a hard drive.
* Booting from USB, Puppy will greatly minimise writes, to extend the life of Flash devices indefinitely.
* Puppy will be extremely friendly for Linux newbies.
* Puppy will boot up and run extraordinarily fast.
* Puppy will have all the applications needed for daily use.
* Puppy will just work, no hassles.
* Puppy will breathe new life into old PCs"

You put the Puppy Linux cd in the cd drive and then boot the computer.

You can use a DOS boot disk with a free NTFS reader (be sure to enable CD-ROM support)
You can use BartPE to recover the data.
You can purchase a USB external drive caddy (about $20) and use it to access the drive via USB.
You can plug the drive into another computer as a "slave" to access the data.
Hopefully, once you get into it, you won't be met with a bunch of "Access Denied" errors. If you are, here's a link that may help: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/42756/how-to-fix-an-access-denied-errors/
Finally, copying the files to a FAT32 partition will eliminate the NTFS security information on the files (making them much easier to work with!).
