Hi again. For some odd reason i had to put the 'My Pictures' folder onto my desktop, so i did that and did what i had to, (i really cant remember why i had to do this) and so i cut and copied it back to its usual place, which is usually in 'My Documents' and for me on XP, it is at the top of the start menu.

HOWEVER, i still have a 'My Pictures' folder on my desktop...there is nothing in it, and when i try to delete it (as i hate having a messy desktop), it says that 'the folder may be in use by another user or program, please close all running programs and try again'...I have no programs running...this is EXTREMELY annoying, maybe even more so than me. Help would be greatly appreciated,
