Find them then delete them?

Search for the names from Windows Explorer (are most likely in Pictures (Vista), or My Pictures (XP)) and delete them; or browse for them from the Desktop properties>wallpapers/background window, right click in the explorer window and delete them from there.

If you have XP you will find them in C:\WINDOWS, note they are often .bmp, be careful what you delete from this folder.

If you mean the default ones, they are located in the folder Mzee named.

If they are other pictures you have to look at their names, and locate them then delete.

Also run ccleaner through the system ( you can download it Via the link in my sig), or Here (http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/) you may have pictures there from your internet temp files.
