Photos Slide Show Screen Saver

I'm trying to change my screen saver to "my photos" slide show. I have gone to my control panel and found where to change the screen saver to photos, selected "my pictures" however only 2 pictures repeat over and over. I probably have over 100 photos and don't understand why it's not showing all of them. I've done it in both XP and Vista and it was so easy...what could I be doing wrong? Help!

Try to approach it from Windows Live Photo Gallery > File. Maybe you have more luck.

All the photos have to be in 1 folder and all need to be checked.

All of my pictures are in "my pictures" folder with subfolders of pictures. If I choose the slide show from "my pictures" , won't it pull all of them? Do you mean that I have to create a separate folder that contains ALL of my pictures to choose for my slide show? What do you mean by all need to be checked? I never saw where that was an option.

Just put them all into 1 (one) folder. Forget the "check" part. It sometimes uses subfolders and sometimes it does not (my observation).

I use FlekDev PhotoSlideShow. It automatically includes all new pictures in MyPictures as they are added. And if I want to exclude some of them I can do it while running, and it never shows up in the slide show again.

Why is it even though I've unlocked protected features, and got the Taskbar, I'm unable to create the slide show, as there is no menu to set it up. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y218/moggy2/pers.jpg
