This is my first post on your excellent forum (I've already learned a few things from browsing other peoples problems) and I have a few things I would like help with. The first thing I would like to ask is on behalf of my partner. Her computer is running Windows Media Centre and she finds that frequently, when selecting files in 'My Pictures' the complete folder is duplicated, sometimes many times over and she can finish up with many hundreds of unwanted copies. Any ideas?

I find that, when attempting to move, copy, or select numbers of graphics files...a slip of my fingers/hand will sometimes result in duplicates being made or shortcuts being made inadvertently.

I just delete them.
