I would disable the option "Scan track directories for album art" at Tools -> Options -> Library, so that MM won't add external art unless you specifically tell it to.

As far as where the art is coming from, its hard to say... do you use Windows Media Player with your music? I know that WMP extracts art from mp3 tags and puts it into the directory where your music is stored.

I disabled, "Scan track directories for album art" and added a new song to my music folder as a test. When I took a look at Track Properties, every track in my collection had the cover art for the new track added as a second cover. When I looked in the music folder, I found two files for the new album art: 1) "Album Art Small" 2) "Folder". Both are jpegs. I typically add new tracks by dragging them to my music folder. I don't use WMP, but MM seems to be behaving like WMP. Every time I add a new song, it puts a copy(s) of the album art in the music folder.
