    I don't know what made this do this. I would think it's something to do with screen saver, don't really know.

    Can you tell me how to stop it,

    I am having an issue with my pictures file(s) running after I quit my computer. I leave it on 24/7.

    I did down load 4 pictures to the file from my digital camera. I do not known how the pictures allow to view on my screen. I knowly did not do anything to cause this condition.

    Now when I return to the computer my pictures are running one at a time. I can click on the screen, and then have to enter a password to get my computer back.

    If this is not the info you needed, please ask me some questions to let you know the information you need.

    Thanks for answering.

    Could be the desktop slide show displaying your images within your pictures folder.

    Or the screen saver is set to do a slideshow of the pictures. Change your desktop wallpaper to not be a slideshow and do the same or your screen saver.

    Hi All, I believe that I have gotten this problem resolved. Thanks to all who answered. I think we all where on the
    right track. After I checked or unchecked boxes and switches
    in slideshow, screensaver, themes, etc., It's now back to
    maybe normal. I use the word normal hoping its repaired.
    Hey nothing about my computer is normal.

    I would like to comment that this seem to start just after
    a microsoft/windows, download/update.

    Thanks all for your help.
