How to recover from Picasa hostile takeover

If I could punch myself, I would. Clicked too fast and our beautifully organized Windows Live Photo Gallery has been emptied into Picasa. DO NOT WANT!!! Is there a site out there that will walk me through zeroing out and disabling Picasa and getting my old setup restored?

I have gone from neutral on Google (sometimes evil, but useful, meh) to hating it with the heat of a thousand hells. I fear that even if I can get the info back into Windows Live Photo Gallery, we will have lost all our careful tagging and rating that has taken months to do. All my searching on Picasa so far has been fast and clouded by pure unadulterated rage, but seems to indicate that Picasa is like kudzu and about as ineradicable, but I am motivated. But how and where to start?
All of the electronic picture frames that we had set up in our house, fed from Windows Live Gallery with only the photos we'd selected and rated, are now black and lifeless, and I want blood, I tell you.
