When I went to my "All Photographs" collection I found hundreds of images that were not mine. I tried to delete them, but when I went back today I found that even more had appeared. Most look like microsoft icons and symbols. How do I get rid of these and prevent more from appearing?

If you right-click and Show in Explorer are the strange images in the normal places for them like c:\windows\whatever, or are they in place of your regular photos in those photos folders?

Maybe you're somehow importing your entire hard-drive. Check your File / Auto Import settings and make sure you don't have it set to some strange place like c:\ or c:\windows.
