Windows 7: STOP: c0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing

STOP: c0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing

Free pills! <-Never mind...

I do not have AVG installed. I believe this was effected by a virus (as just before I could not boot I had the "Win 7 Home Security" virus pop up).
How do I boot up my computer without losing my files? I've tried the Googles, but nothing is working. I do not have back-ups that would be of ANY use, and this hard drive is vital to my academic and personal future. It is a Toshiba Satellite Series L655D-S5109.
What is %hs? How do I boot around it? Is there a way to load from a DVD or USB drive a fix for %hs being missing? Is there a way that I can protect my files at this date and do a full system wipe? Is there anything I haven't thought of? I need these files...I am an intermediate to advanced user, though not worthy of "Shibboleth."
I have learned two things from this already: The importance of back-ups, and the importance of regularly updating security definitions.
Note: not a BSoD, because error arises on start-up, not killing my processes and such.
