windows XP.picture files

i am new to xp.
without my assistance,the contents of 'my pictures' folder have duplicated and listed themselves in the desktop/background drop-down menu.i do not want them to show there but can not clear them.
i have renamed/moved the folder but am uncertain if xp will do the same to any future'pictures' folder.
how do i remove these from the background menu list and ensure others are not transferred/duplicated??

Right-click the Start button, choose Properties > Customize > Advanced. You will see a whole bunch of options to control which entries do/do not appear on your Start Menu. Tick and untick to your hearts content.
