If you enter a folder for the My Pictures Slideshow, the images that are displayed in the My Pictures Slideshow screen saver are not from the folder that you entered.


This problem can occur if the folder that you entered for the My Pictures Slideshow contains hidden System folders that also contain images.


To resolve this problem, move the image files from the folder that you do not want displayed, to a folder that is not a subfolder of the folder that you entered for the screen saver.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
