While visiting my son, he downloaded the pictures from his digital camera, and somehow he ended up having shortcuts to over 100 pictures on the desktop. I tried to delete them and as fast as I deleted them they kept copying and making more. I finally got rid of them by using the "clean desktop feature", but then when I went to My picture folder I found the shortcuts there were multiplied like rabbits.I started deleting from there, delete 15 and it would automatically start copying back. I have some 78 copies of some shortcuts. How can I get rid of all of these ? And what is causing this "ghost copier" to keep doing its dirty work?
