Windows 7: Pictures Library Arrange By Date gives results by Day and by Month

Pictures Library Arrange By Date gives results by Day and by Month

I'm using the 'Arrange By' selection box in the Pictures Library. When I use the 'Arrange By' selection to arrange my pictures by date (in descending order) I get about 2 years of pictures grouped by day and the remainder by month. Arranging 'by month' does not work at all. This happens for all the folders I have in the Pictures library. Has anybody a suggestion on why this is teh case? Thanks for your help.

Make sure that under the pictures folder (c\users\ your username \pictures) properties, under customize make sure the folder is optimized for pictures.

Also right click some of your pictures and make sure the data and time stamp is correct. Meta data could be wrong messing everything up. Right click picture-properties-details.
