Windows 7: Unspecified folder in pictures library

Unspecified folder in pictures library

I HAVE AN UNSPECIFIED FOLDER IN MY PICTURES LIBRARY THAT CONTAINS EVERYTHING THAT COMES IN TO MY COMPUTER. It contains email, documents, pictures and a whole host of items that I haven't asked for. When I delete items from this folder it also removes them from where they should be, inbox, windows photo gallery, and my documents. How can I remove this unspecified folder without losing emails, photos and documents. Can anyone help please? This rouge folder just appeared.
