I have some photos saved in "my documents" when I try to delete them my PC starts to make copys, so I now have 4 sets of the photos, how can I get rid of them once and for all.

Thanks

right click on the photo move your mouse to delete

Thanks, but that is how I have been trying to delete them, but my PC starts making copys without any prompting from me.

Try dragging them to the recycle bin.

do you have a full xp cd?

also try selecting the photo and press del on your keyboard

Open the file with the photos, go to Edit/Select all/ Hold the ctrl down and click on any you want to deselect if there are any, so that all the photos you want to delete are highlighted. Go back to Edit and click Delete

I don't understand what that mean's ...sorry the prob is fixed, but do i need to know about XP CD?

Sorry if this seems a stupid question all.

try summin like eraser. it deletes stuff as the name suggests but does not send them to recycle bin but overites the data there and then with secure deletion methods such at gutman. i use it to delet all my personal and sensitive data and have to admit it does a good job. it is also open source and is such free to use.

I think stalion was asking in case there was a system file fault so that he could give advice how to cure it, but if all seems OK now you won't need it. I'm glad you solved your problem.

yes as rawprawn says if you have a retail version of xp I was going to suggest doing
sfc /scannow to check your windows files.
Trying to delete should not cause your pc to copy
