Anyone know how to prevent picasa from capturing screenshots and saving them automatically in a folder?
This only happens when Picasa is running.

I also saw this happen and the solution is very simple. This is due to a print screen key stuck on the keyboard. Just press once and see, it should stop. IF not check the print screen key. It must be stuck physically. Very simple solution: http://day2dayexps.blogspot.in/2013/02/how-to-stop-picasa-saving-screenshots.html
