My dads pc is downloading everything through picasa all of a sudden. im not sure what he has done - is it something to do with the 'default programme'?

appreciate the above does not give much detail - but thats all i know at present.

all advice appreciated

It could be that Google bundled their browser Chrome with an update and it's that which is now the default.

thanks for the response -
hmm but the problem is with picasa not IE...

When you say "download" are you referring to importing pictures? If the Picasa icon is showing next to the clock it will take over importing media, you can right click and disable it.
