Specs: Windows XP, 2
The computer I just bought has a ton of personal pictures as wallpaper listed. How can I get rid of all these and leave just the ones that came with Windows.
Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you bought the machine used. The photos you speak of could be in a separate folder apart from the "standard" wallpapers. If so, you could just locate that folder (search for files named ".jpg", ".gif", etc) and delete them all. Likely, though, photos may not be the only thing you wish to get rid of. A used system may have a clogged registry and potentially "badware" (viruses and malware) that need to be removed as well. If the machine came with the original OS disc, it'd be best just to wipe the drive and start over (though you'd also lose additional programs you'd like to keep)...
