I'm using windows XP and I would like to know why I sent an E-mail to my friend with some pictures in it and when he comes to open his E-mail at my place and scroll down to view his pictures and goes on the arrow to the " next picture" and " next picture" to view them all one after one, He also get's to see all the images that had been clicked on or viewed on my cumputer, either on hotmail or anywhere on the internet. I'm using the program windows photo gallery.
So, basicaly everyday if he wants to know what have been looked at on my computer he can by openning his E-mail and going to pictures sent and he just have to go on and on and on and he gets to see what has been looked at. How can this be changed because it's causing a privacy issue.

Thank You

Probably because you are referencing the files directly on your PC, and because your friend is using your PC, the images work.
I have to ask, if your friend regularly comes round and looks at his email on your PC, why are you emailing him in the first place?

also...why is your friend logging on to your account? if he's that regular of a visitor, create him his own account on your computer, set a password on your account and his and when he wants to use your computer log off of your account and have him log in to his
