Right click on the folder and click the security tab (If you do not see this, then disable simple file sharing by opening explorer, then clicking Tools->Folder Options->View, then uncheck "Use simple file sharing").  Then, simply add yourself back to the list of allowed users.

Failing the above, try taking ownership: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=308421
Also, see if you can copy the file to a non NTFS drive like fat32 or a samba share, even a floppy if the file is small enough- also might try to burn it to a cd...
