Hi,

Deleting the pictures in the C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper directory will not
prevent pictures listed in the My Pictures directory from being listed in
the desktop tab.

To the OP: Move your pictures from the My Pictures directory to some other
location (eg: C:\pictures) and this should prevent them from appearing in
the wallpapers list under the desktop tab.
