We can do two things...
1. we can boot to an XP CD and run the command prompt. From there, you can browse to Documents and Settings/**Username/My Documents/My Pictures/ and look for your picture files here. This take a little DOS knowledge of how to move around without the aid of Windows.
2. You can create a Bart PE disk (CD)
. The instructions are on the site. You will have to create this disk on a clean computer. Boot that CD and you have PE Windows. From there you can browse and copy the needed files to your external. Just be careful. Scan the extreal drive before placing the files back onto your fresh disk.
Let me know if you need more detailed instructions.
