Create a live Linux CD or flashdrive: Boot to the live CD or flashdrive and copy your file to a flashdrive or USB external drive.

Yes, it will work successfully: No problem!
Edit: By "password protected", I am assuming that you mean you need a password to log on to the Windows operating system, and nothing more than that.

There is no guarantee that virus removal will be successful, so it is always wise to retrieve (backup) all your personal data to an external drive, whether you intend to attempt virus removal and reviving your existing Windows system, or simply performing a clean installation of Windows.
I still need help removing the virus and getting the rest of the data off my old laptop

Boot the problematic machine from the LIVE CD or flashdrive.
- (You may have to configure the Boot Menu or BIOS Setup Menu to boot first from the optical/CD drive or the flashdrive, which ever you are using.)
- Choose to run the Linux operating system from the CD or flashdrive without making any changes to your computer.
Do NOT install Linux on your hard drive.
[*]When the Linux operating system loads ...
[*]You will be able to navigate to all the files on your HDD.
[*]You can backup your files by copying them to a flashdrive or an external hard drive.

You have booted successfully from the Puppy CD ... I assume.
I've loaded up my laptop and have access to all my files
