I have a glitch in my XP. When I put photos on CD a copy goes in my picture file. Also, whenever I try to delete more than one photo at a time more copies appear. I may have 20 copies of copies. The only way to delete them is one at a time which takes forever. If I try to do more than one it copies more to my file instead of deleting. Thanks WB

When you select multiple pictures to copy to cd or to delete them are you using the ctrl key? If so make sure that you are not selecting multiple files and then moving your mouse with the left button held down. If your mouse moves far enough it will copy everythin that is highlighted.

That must be what I am doing. How else do I delete mutiple files? I use control key and left click each picture I want to remove, then click on delete these pictures. WB

You are selecting files for deletion the correct way, just try not to move the mouse while you have the left mouse button pressed. That is if this is the problem of why they are multiplying.
