    Strange message on black screen (screen lock?)


    Neither McAfee nor Windows Defender find a virus but whenever my screen lock comes on, I get the following strange message: "There are no pictures in Libraries\Pictures". I can't make a screen print because as soon as I touch any key, the message disappears. The message is in very small type and it migrates very slowly across the screen. Does my computer need an exorcist ?

    Hey Ken,
    Sounds like you're using a Lock Screen Slideshow and the folder it points to is empty. You can change the folder the Lock Screen Slideshow is pointing to or change the Background to Windows Spotlight or Picture. You can find out by going to Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen
