computer playing up

Hi,
Just recently every time I restart my computer it duplicates all photos from the my pictures folders and places them on the desk top. I have to delete one at a time or it just keeps duplicating them. Any ideas what the cause is and how to stop it? I ran anti virus and said no infection found, as I thought it could be a virus. Help please as it's really annoying.
Thanks

Ive got norton antivirus 2004. Would this find most things? Always kept up to date too.

stalion does the virus scan delete the problems for you? Says it found 3 viruses so far. How can norton miss them? Is it rubbish?

nearly everytime i run a virus check, my computer shuts down & i get the screen. I have tried lots of things, including installing norton system works 05,service pack 2 etc . All my definitions are always up to date,but i am stumped. Any advice would be helpful.
i am running xp pro
1.7 gh
896 mb 0f ram
2 drives c & f= 40gb+180gb

yes it deletes them for you and rectifies any problems it finds either by deleting or re-naming.
No norton is not rubbish but just not as thorough as the program you are useing which is a specific tool for finding viruses ,trojans etc

Thanks stalion looks like it was just what I needed.At least I'll be virus free and hopefully solve the problem of the reappearing pictures. Just sent the link to my father hope you dont mind. Regards
