    I asked a question a while back on how to stop Windows from showing me the contents of the "My Pictures" folder when I was choosing a new desktop wallpaper.

    ...many were stumped.

    I mickey moused a solution by moving everything in my "My Pictures" folder into another folder I created called "My Images" and that solved the problem perfectly. I even customized the folders icon so that it looked just like the original "My Pictures" folder.

    Now onto my question;

    I've just now noticed that even though I've deleted it in the past, the "My Pictures" folder keeps getting re-created when I reboot. Nothing is inside of it, but it is just there... I delete it, reboot, and there it is again!

    Is there a way to stop Windows from re-creating the "My Pictures" folder for good? I would love to use it, but it made a mess of my desktop wallpaper list!

    Not without going through a very complicated procedure. But you can move it and hide it inside another folder if you don't want to see it.
