windows pictures problem is causing multiple copies of photos on PC?

PROBLEM WITH WINDOWS PICTURES.  IT  PRODUCES THREE TO FIVE COPIES ON MY MONITOR AND WHEN I ERASE ALL BUT ONE THEY COME BACK LATER THROUGH OUT THE SQUARES IN OTHER PLACES.  ANY PICTURES THAT ARE ADDED TO MY PC GO THERE IN MULTIPLES.  WHAT MIGHT BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM AND HOW CAN I CORRECT THE PROBLEM.  KEEP IN MIND THAT I ALSO HAVE PICASA ON THIS PC AND IT IS POSSIBLE THE PROBLEM IS RELATED TO THAT BUT NOT SURE.
THANKS,
CAPREOL

Uninstall Picasa and see if the problem goes away.  I'd also scan for Malware and do a deep AV scan of your computer.

CAPREOL  Picasa will add new photos to specified folder of each of the new photos. In Picasa disable the the watch as it add new photos automatically. if it is set to search your whole computer it may also be set to move them.
that was the reason I stopped using it as anywhere I have photos Picasa creates a folder for it's own library, like a quick access, so if your photos are spread out over different areas on your system Picasa adds it's own folder as well doubling the amount of space used on your drive.
I believe Google+ works with Picasa as well\ no need to uninstall it just change the preferences in tools.
In Picasa go to Tools->Folder Manager
 untick “Scan Always” or remove folders from the watched list below
OK
