When you preview an image using Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, every picture from the previously visited websites may be listed.


When you view an attached image directly from your email client (such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express etc), the attachment are stored in the Temporary Internet Files, before it's being previewed. So, the Temporary Internet Files folder becomes Windows Picture and Fax Viewer's working directory, and all the pictures in the Temporary Internet Files are lined up in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. To solve the problem, clear all Temporary Internet Files cache, including the offline content.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options
  3. Click the General tab
