Images from My Pictures not showing as wallpaper choices f..

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

This is a rather unusual situation I'm at a loss to
explain.

When I'm logged into my primary user account, when you
select the Desktop tab in Display Properties, it does not
display any of the images in My Pictures like it used to.

The other 13 user accounts (some limited, some power
users, and 2 administrators) all display images that are
in their My Pictures folders.

Is there some setting I could have accdientally changed
with the group policy editor or some registry key I may
have changed/removed when hardening the system? I tried
doing a system restore back to the point when it last
functioned correctly, but it refused to restore to that
point (Or any other restore point).

    At around 100 pictures in My Pics they stop being listed in Display Properties.

    Thank you, that's what it was. I've always tried to keep
    My pictures empty of files except the ones I use for my
    personal wallpapers and didn't realize I had as many as I
    did in there until I checked just now :)
