Are you sure Picasa isn't just scanning your hardware and compiling a complete list of all available photos?

I have never used Picasa. I've never even read about it.
But if OtheHill is right that it is compiling a list of all images
on your computer, including those in the Temporary Internet
Files folder, then it is pretty obvious that you just need to
tell Picasa which folders you want it to catalog and which
folders you don't want it to catalog.

I originally thought you mistyped Picasa. I now see there may be a program called Picasso 3. Clarify what program is running and downloading.

Is English a second language for you? I ask because you answer pecasso 3 - 3.9. 3.9 happens to be the curent version of Picasa. Note the difference in spelling.

I see that Picasa has a feature called "Web Albums", which
depends on a website owned by Google (the owner of Picasa).
Is that where your problem is?

A very brief glance at a description of Picasa Web Albums
says there is a 1 GB limit on the combined size of all large
images, and when you go over the limit, the images are
automatically resized. I can see how that could be a disaster,
even if -- as I hope and expect -- you keep copies of the
originals on your computer.

Again, it looks like you just need to find the setting in Picasa
to tell it what you want it to do, and what you want it not to do.
If you can't find the setting, use Picasa's Help file. If you can't
find it there, Picasa must have a user help forum where lots
of Picasa users should be able to tell you.
