    Pictures Folder keeps appearing on my Desktop


    Ever since I updated to the Windows 10 Anniversary update, I keep getting a Pictures folder reappearing on my desktop. Any clue how to get this to stop without going into the registry and permanently deleting the Folder(?)

    Does that happen
    a. in Safe Mode
    b. after a clean boot
