There are no images in the my pictures folder on the C drive but the count is still on 81, see attachment. There are no subfolders. Anyone an explanation?

You could try deleting the Helper file (that contains references to locations and photo numbers) - it'll simply rebuild when you open the catalog next. Make sure the catalog is closed when you do this. It'll sit next to the catalog and be called catalogname Helper.lrdata (where catalogname is the name of your catalog, of course).
