Pictures SLOOOW to download? Answered

OK. Here's the thing. I have Webshot pictures. I have all others from various sources stored in 'My Pictures'.
I use my desktop as a 'picture gallery', changing the pic everyday. BUT Webshots dominates, and if my pic is not from its source-it changes the desktop pic to the last Webshots pic that was there.

That is problem no 1. I don't want to lose their pics, but I who love to lose them! Easier said than done... any tips on that??

Now: the main question: I know that My Pics are capable of downloading fairly instantly. They used to/then they slowed again-(I had some sort of a minor comp glitch),-and bang!, they came back to speed/slow again/...glitch (computer froze,-not for long, then OK)-they were at speed again! That was this week.
This time I watched the sequence: I defragged??? Slow again. Taking about 1min 30 for the pictures to download (upload??). (Webshots are unaffected).

On a scale of 1-10 computer capability, I would be about a 6. But I have tried. I am ASDL2. I have Avast. I suspected Avast was scanning every picture. I went to 'exclusions' and excluded 'images'.....I think. I did click on My Pics for exclusion. No dice. Still slow.

This is problem no 2.

This is lengthy, but I don't know any other way,-and some of the Tech'sites are waaaay over my little grey head.

Any help would be appreciated.
