How do I stop photo gallery opening movies?

Basically the title says it all. I want to disable photo galleries
ability to open movies as part of the 'show next' button. The
equivalent didn't do this is XP.

Specificially what functionality am I describing here: lets say I have
1.jpg, 1.wmv, 2.jpg, 2.wmv etc... where the gifs are thumbnails of the
movies. If I open 1.jpg with photo gallery (the default app) and go to
'next' with the right arrow it opens 1.wmv. I want picture viewer to
just go over pictures and not open the video files. Right now the only
solution I can see is to take movies in a format windows photo gallery
cannot open (since it even tries to open files for which it is not the
default viewer such as avi's), or use a different app for everything.

===========================
What you could do is to remove all
folders from PhotoGallery and then
add only the folders you need.

If you would like to clear Windows
Vista Photo Gallery...try the following...
============================
The following steps should clear the
Photo Gallery...then you can add any
folder you choose.

Open Photo Gallery and go to...

File / Add Folder to Gallery

In the Folder field...Type C:\

The drop window will open...

In the drop window...choose...
C:\Users / OK / OK

In the left pane of Photo Gallery under
"Folders"...right click..."Users"

From the menu...choose...
"Remove From The Gallery" / Yes.

That should do it.....

Now you can go to...File / Include a folder
in the gallery...and choose any folder you
prefer.

===

If the result is not what you hoped for...
Right click your Start button and choose...Explore...

Navigate to the following folder:

C:\Users\>UserName<\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s Photo Gallery
Delete everything in the folder...
Specifically...Pictures.pd4 and NavTree.State

The next time you open the Photo Gallery
it will be as it was the first time you opened it.

Good luck...
