The kernel mode I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. This error also might occur during an upgrade to Win XP on systems that use higher throughput ATA disks or controllers with incorrect cabling. In some cases, your system might appear to work normally after you restart.

Given that there is malware on your system, it may be the best option to proceed with.
About wiping the hard drive and doing a clean install, I think this is probably going to be the most likely thing I will have to end up doing, but as of yet, I do not have any extra storage space to back up the contents.

Scan the infected hard drive with everything you can throw at it ... at the very least scan with your updated anti-virus, before copying any files from it.
what is the best way to back up my files whilst avoiding the possibly infected files?

The safest practice is not to backup any executable files (*.exe), screensavers (*.scr), autorun (.ini) or script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml ) files because they may be infected by malware. Avoid backing up compressed files (.zip, .cab, .rar) that have executable files inside them as some types of malware can penetrate and infect .exe files within compressed files too. Other types of malware may even disguise itself by adding and hiding its extension to the existing extension of file(s) so be sure you look closely at the full file name. Then make sure you scan the backed up data with your anti-virus prior to copying it back to your hard drive.
Again, do not back up any data with the following file extensions: exe, .scr, .ini, .htm, .html, .php, .asp, .xml, .zip, .rar, .cab as they may be infected.
