My Pictures folder error

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

For some reason now my 'My Pictures' folder now thinks it’s a music folder.
When ever I go to it in the top left hand corner it always says 'Music Tasks'
it thinks that there are music files when there aren't just pictures. Also
know you can't view it as a slideshow type thing when you right-click & then
view. All you do is; thumbnails, tiles, icons ect... This is very annoying
seen as I liked the slideshow view. Also if you do put in some music files it
will come up saying, play all or selection. I know that it will be something
to do with the settings but I'm not sure which settings and where.

I have been told to;
Right click on folder
Properties
Customize
Select the kind of folder

When I go to properties there is no customize. Under general there is all
the standard settings, like read-only and everything and how many mb are in
the folder. There is also a sharing folder so then you can share the
contents, which I don't quite understand and at the moment I don’t need to.
If I go to my music or my video's there is no customize bit either. When I go
to another folder's properties there is, a customize so you can select the
type of folder I would like.

If I go into the My Pictures folder through;

My computer
Documents & Settings
User Name
My Documents
My Pictures

It all seems to work fine and it thinks that it’s a picture folder. There
are a lot of shortcuts to My Pictures which is what I mainly use and these
don’t work. Here it keeps thinking it’s a music folder. If you go onto a My
Documents folder through and shortcut including the desktop it also thinks
here that it is a music folder. What has gone wrong and where in the settings
seen as it’s only some of the settings now seen as it can work through My
Computer ect…


Please help.
Thanks
