Default pics appearing on phone

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, I've a slight problem with my curve 8520. A few weeks ago I noticed loads of small pics, maybe thumbnails in with my photos. I didn't know where they came from and took ages to delete them one by one.
Next day they were back. There is everything from pics of heads, to fish, to flags in with them, around 150-180 of them
I deleted any apps I downloaded around the time they appeared and they still keep coming back after I delete them.
They are doin my head in, any ideas how to clear them for good?
Thanks

Did you load an App that may be sending these? Might be spam of some type.
Are you connected to DM and doing a restore or is it possible you have some app on a PC thats loading them. Receiving via Text?

I can only assume they are coming from some app that is no longer on the phone as my kid dipped my usb lead into his dinner and it hasn't worked since lol.
The only apps I have currently installed have been on the phone a long time before these pics started appearing. I downloaded a fishing game a few weeks ago and deleted it again as it wasn't great and suspect they are coming from that but can't be sure. Is there any way of stopping them if they are from that or just spam getting in somehow?
Thanks again
