Question about Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop
If you have a second hard drive inside the pc you can copy them there. Otherwise you'll need to copy to a CD or USB drive. The hard part is going to be figuring out where all your files/pics are located at. You can do a search through windows explorer by extension on the whole C: drive. Ex. search for all *.pdf files for Adobe, all *.jpg for pictures. Also be sure to save your profile as it contains your IE Favorites, My Documents, My Music, etc.

Firstly, to save all your personal files search in the locations you normally save your files (Mostly in my documents folder). Use search to find file formats you normally store for example .jpg, .gif, .bmp, .txt, .rtf, .doc, .docx, .pdf etc depending upon your usage type and move them to another PC or burn on a disk.
Secondly, instead of formatting your OS, you can try and repair the installation if you have the original OS installation disk. This way you will not have to move your files and also all the installed programs will not require reinstalling.
