You could boot a livecd, mount your hdd and then delete it then. The livecd wouldn't be affected by it I don't think. You also might to run an fsck on your hdd while your there just to see if it's getting to something bad and just craps itself.

you may need to fsck

(please read up on fsck, backups, system recovery, etc. first if you're not familiar with fsck)
