Hello and welcome to FixYa
To upload your photos from your Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera to computer
1.First connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways:
Use a USB cable:Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. Through memory card:A memory card reader is a piece of hardware
that plugs right into your computer. You remove the memory card from
your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the
way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk.
Now connect USB cabe or Memory card Reader to the port of the computer
2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your
memory card into your memory card reader, your computer will detect the
connection and ask you what you want to do with your pictures. If you
connected your camera with a USB cable, click Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OKIf you are using a memory card reader, click Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK.
If you are using a memory card reader, click Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK.
3.When the Scanner and Camera Wizard appears, click Next.
4.All of the pictures on your camera (or in your camera's memory card)
are now displayed on the Choose Pictures to Copy page. By default,
Windows XP selects all of the pictures for downloading. If there are
pictures you do not want to download, just clear the check box next to
those pictures. At this stage, you can also rotate pictures that you
took while holding your camera vertically. To rotate a picture, click
it, and then click either the Rotate clockwise or Rotate counterclockwise button
on the lower-left side of the page. When you have reviewed the pictures
for downloading and rotated your vertical pictures, click Next.
the Picture Name and Destination page, type a name for the group of
pictures. (This name, plus a number to differentiate each picture, will
be applied to each of the pictures you download; for example, if you
name the group "Vacation," the pictures will be named "Vacation001,"
"Vacation002," and so on.) Click Browse, and select a folder in which to save your pictures.
If you want to erase the images from your camera's memory card to make space for new ones, select the Delete pictures from my device after copying them check box, and then click Next.
The Scanner and Camera Wizard copies the pictures from your camera to
the folder you specified and then removes the pictures from your
camera's memory card.
the Other Options page, you can choose to publish your pictures to a
Web site or order prints. If you have finished working with your
pictures, click Nothing, and then click Next.
8.On the final page of the wizard, click Finish. Windows XP opens
a Windows Explorer window showing the pictures you downloaded from your
camera. Your camera's memory card is now clean and ready to store new
pictures. If you connected your camera to your computer using a USB
cable, disconnect your camera. If you used a memory card reader, return
the memory card to the camera.
Your photos are now stored on your computer, ready for whatever you want
to do with them, and your camera is ready to take more pictures.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries. The card reader doesn't care what camera took the pictures, so you can use it with any camera (assuming the card itself fits).
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.
