When you tap F8 at boot does it give the option to repair the computer? You can go through the steps and do a System Restore if you have any Restore Points. The thing to note is any files or folders placed on the desktop after the restore point will be lost.
Edit: Do you have another computer with Windows 7? We can make a bootable disk that can be used to recover your pictures and any other data. You can also recover your pictures with a Live Linux Disk like Puppy. It is not difficult.

If you do not have Windows 7 you can create a bootable disk of Puppy linux 5.2.8. Download the iso file and burn is with isoburner or any burning program that can burn an image file. Boot the Puppy disk. When at the Puppy desktop you will see your hard drive in the lower left. It will be labeled sda1 or sda2 depending on the number of partitions on the drive. Edit: You may have to try each sda partition to find the Windows System Partition
Click once on the drive icon. A green dot will appear on the drive and a File Manager will open showing the contents. Attach a USB flash drive or external drive to the computer. A usb icon will appear next to your Optical drive icon. Click once on it and another File Manager window will open. You can left click + Ctrl to select files and folders of the hard drive. You can also left click and drag a window around the files/folders. After you have highlighted the files/folders left click and drag to the USB flash drive File Manager Window. A small dialog window will appear asking if you will want to copy or move the files. Select Copy not Move.and check the Quiet box. The files will be copied to the external or flash drive.
Here is a guide explaining the use of Puppy. You do not have to do the disk check.
Edit: You only need to click once on a folder to open it. Do not double click or you will open two windows.
