Preferred Solution: My Pictures won't let me delete!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My wife and I went on vacation and took some pictures that.....well......shouldn't be seen in public. I transferred some of the "bad" pictures along with the "good" pictures to My Pictures. I sent the "bad" pictures to the Recycle Bin and emptied it, but when my screen saver kicked in, which shows a slideshow of My Pictures, I saw some of the "bad" pictures on the slideshow. How can I get rid of these pics? I would be grateful for any help.

As grandparents, we are new to digital photography. We got a new digital camera that uses a secure digital card. There were 204 pictures on the card. I put it in my media reader and downloaded the photos on to my computer Windows XP. I thought I took the card out of the reader but am not positive about that. Any way, I started looking at the pictures and deleting the ones that were out of focus etc. When my husband put the card back in the camera and started looking for certain pictures, they were gone. But there was a black space where the picture used to be. If I delete the picture using the camera, it just disappears as if it was never there and does not leave a space. So, I am in trouble because I deleted his pictures off his SD card.. I don't know how I did that. But the crazy part is that some pictures that I deleted from the computer are still on his card and some pictures that I have on my computer are no longer on his SD card. This is the part that is a real mystery to me to explain how I could have done this. I am in BIG trouble with my husband. Can any one explain the missing photos and what happened ??

Hey there!
I have a problem that I wasn't able to google out so I am posting it here. It concerns yahoo email. I found out that yahoo saves all the pictures you send and receive as attachment in your emails into a separate picture folder. This folder is not visible in the yahoo mail interface on PC but it is viewable when logging in via smarphone (I do not use the yahoo smarphone app, just direct login through web browser - google chrome on iOS 7).

The pictures that are viewable in the "pictures" folder when logging through smarphone web browser cannot be deleted in any obvious way (such as a delete button or something). I figured they should dissapear if I delete the original message BUT that worked only partially. After deleting the said emails, I could no longer see pictures that I received from others, but I can still see pictures that I sent myself (and yes, I made sure to delete all the emails in "sent" folder as well). Please help! It is driving me crazy.
Thanks.

It is astounding to me that Microsoft would not allow users to delete a user picture, if the user didn't want one at the logon screen.

What possible reason is there to disallow deleting the picture. I know you can create a blank jpg, use a different picture, but why not just eliminate the user picture. A choice to get rid of that bad decision some of us make in testing and trying things is just too puzzling to let go.

I share IT responsibilities at my company and one of our (former) sales people added profile pictures to every single one of his contacts (787). To make matters worse, the large majority of them are celebrities & models if he liked the person, or "ugly people" if he did not like them.

Using WindowsXP - trying to delete photos in my pictures. Whenever I hit "delete" for the selected pictures, another copy of those pics is made and placed in the my pictures file. What causes this? How can I prevent this from happening?
 

A:can not delete pics in "my pictures"

Try this solution below that I found elsewhere ....

...highlighted the file to be deleted.. For example, when you quickly highlight multiple files to delete, if you accidentally "drag" the mouse a little too much, it creates a copy of every file that was previously highlighted and saves it to the same folder.

First, try deleting a single file by RIGHT clicking on the file, choose "Delete".. If no extra copy is made of that file, then nothing is wrong except your technique of highlighting files.

There are other ways to highlight multiple files.. For example, if you got a bunch of files all in order, click on the first file to highlight it, then hold down the "Shift" key, then click once on the last file in the list.. All files in between will be highlighted. You can then click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Delete" from the menu items.

Or, if you want to remove a large number of files from a folder, open the folder, click on "Edit" in the upper left, select "Select All".. All of the files will be highlighted in the folder, ready for deletion.. To eliminate those files you still want to keep, hold down the "Ctrl" key, then click once on each file you want to save in the folder.. When you're ready to delete all the files that remain highlighted, click on "File", select "Delete".

Hi,
I formatted my drive after I saved my favorites and my pictures to CD. Formatting cleared up the problem of two dial up connections. I tried everything on that. The duplicate connection is no more. Finally! Anyway, back to why I am posting again. I want to put the pictures that I saved from the My Pictures folder back to the My Pictures folder. I have set one of them as the new desktop background. (It was before the format). I have looked in Help and Support, but I can't seem to find anything. I have typed in "Export Pictures from CD to My Pictures folder" without the quotes and I get a list of links pertaining to CD recording errors and other things like that. I did right click on a picture in Drive E (my CD-RW) just to see what would come up and I noticed that on the Send To menu that these pictures can be sent to the desktop. Is this what I should do then? Send them to the desktop and open them and send them from here to the My Pictures folder? It can't be that easy, can it? Let me hear from anybody.

I am using an old Dell with XP and Internet Explorer 7. When previewing some images I have stored in My Pictures, I find when using the 'previous' and 'next' buttons I am able to pull up the next or previous pictures as I should. But when I e-mail an image to myself and then use the 'next' or 'previous' buttons, I begin to get images from web sites I have recently visited even if it is just my home page. While scanning my home page, for instance, I collect dozens of images in a matter of minutes. The 'properties' of these images show when they were created and this began on 11/27/08. The only change I have made recently is a download of info from a digital camera disc to enable me to store pictures from my new camera. I did a system restore to a couple of days before that download but I'm still copying dots, dashes, logos and pictures or frames from videos. Is this something anyone has encountered or heard of?

Hello!

All the pictures in my Pictures folder have disappeared, leaving behind a bunch of empty folders. I did not delete them, and I have no viruses according to AVG. It appears that this happened to a few others on this forum, but no solutions were presented.

If it helps - I noticed that the Read Only button was checked on the main folder, so I unchecked it, and I watched the status window un-apply "read only" protection from all my actual pictures files, so it seems to me that they're still there but invisible.

I performed a system restore, and Recova is in the process of performing a "Deep Scan" for my pictures (the quicker scan did not find the files). Has anyone solved the problem of the disappearing pictures? Is this a Vista problem, or perhaps a problem with an update? Any help would be appreciated!

This could be one for the books,

Last night when I went to look at the Pictures folder in My Documents there was a folder of pictures and six other pictures in my folder that no one, not me, nor anyone else downloaded to the computer. All of them are JPG files and we have friends who have e-mailed pictures to us.

However, in my fifteen years of computer experience I know that I would personally have to download those photos to mu computer in order for them to be viewed. A family member has posted unrelated pictures on E-bay. We are trying to think and there were no e-mails opened, no photos looked at, nothing between the time that this happened, (Last Night.) Because a family friend who is into photography sent nature pictures through E-Mail, I just assumed it was from him and said, "Oh, I put those pictures that you downloaded last night in a folder, and the other computer user in my family said, "What pictures?"

I don't use Photo Sharing of any kind, My Avast Anti-Virus log shows now threats. All of the pictures are OLD. BUT here is the interesting thing, of the photo specs of them so far that I can see, they were taken by a person who has the SAME type of camera that we use on this computer. BUT we just got the camera last year and no one else has used it. The dates on those pictures go back from 2000-2003.

There is no evidence of anyone using any photo sharing application software. The computer runs as well as as ever. Any ideas?

PLEASE HELP ME! I receive pictures from time to time in my e-mails of my grandkids, etc. Unfortunately whenever I use the roller on my mouse to scroll down, there are pornographic pictures hidden behind my pictures. How can I rid myself of this nuisance once and for all. For some reason Norton Antivirus does not proctect me from all things. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

When I open "My Pictures" via the start menu or if I open "My Documents, My Pictures" from within Explorer I can view the thumbnails and go to sub directories, but when I go back up a directory or leave "My Pictures" it takes a while. Here's the weird part. If I go into the same directories only take the long route in (Open Explorer, C:, Documents and Settings, User, My Documents, My Pictures, Sub Directory X) then when I click to go up the directory or back out it's almost instantaneous!

Here's what I've tried:
Delete thumbs - this helped quite a bit...from taking 30 seconds or more down to about 3-5 seconds.
I've copied the entire "My Pictures" to a temp directory, Del "My Pictures" and then recreated "My Pictures" and copied them back.

Just an idea...do you have indexing enabled? If so, you might try access with it temporarily disabled.http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread4500.htmlLouis

I am trying to create a delete query to delete all parent records (DGRP) that does not have any child records (CLLI) but I get the error "Could not delete from specific tables".

DELETE DGRP.*
FROM DGRP LEFT JOIN CLLI ON DGRP.DGRP = CLLI.DGRP
WHERE (((CLLI.CLLI) Is Null));

Can this be accomplished?
