Windows 7: Keeps creating "My Pictures" folder with no location tab

Keeps creating "My Pictures" folder with no location tab

I have all my pictures in my regular My Pictures folder, however, every time I do anything with photos my machine creates a new My Pictures folder inside the My Documents folder. This newly created folder does not have a location tab under properties so I delete it but next time I look at or file away or print some pictures the new My Pictures folder (without location tab) reappears. Any idea/advice how to stop this happening appreciated in advance.
