Question: pictures on my iphone show videos on computer

Can someone tell me why, when I connect my phone to my laptop, it is showing film versions of some of my pictures. I delete them, but then when I plug phone back onto computer, they reappear. Makes it really messy to look at my photos on my computer desktop, which is my preferred way to view and save permanently.

Turn off the live feature on your camera, when you use the function it take short video prior to you taking the picture.

Ok, I did that. Thnx. But when I connect my phone to laptop, and delete those extra files that were there before I turned off live, they reappear when I reconnect my phone to computer. I haven't deleted the original pix off my phone cuz still want them there. Evidently files are interconnected and won't delete until actual pix are. Besides the MOV files some also have AAE files. Which also won't delete. Can you tell me what these are? More thnx.
