Hi Mitchell
You can try booting up your computer in the DOS mode. Then copy the file you want. You may have to unhide the file.
You can use attrib -a -r -s -h filename.extension
a is for archive
s for system
r for readonly
h for hidden
You can search for hidden files using dir/ah.
Now unhide the file copy it.

the command to copy files is the copy command. the folder those files go in depends on which version of windows you have. if i remember correctly
in win 95 it is c:\windows\system
in win 98 it is c:\windows\system32
in win 2000 it is c:\windows\winnt
when you boot off the floppy, you should be in the root of a: which is where the files probly are so you would type something like
copy KERNEL32.DLL c:\windows\system
for each of the files
