music library is really messed up

i have a problem with the music folder/library on my computer. for some reason it started showing all of my pictures from the pictures library, and when i delete a picture from music, the same picture will get deleted in the pictures library, so i guess some how my pictures are syncing with my music library. and another strange thing that happens here is my itunes folder how shows all its sub folders in the music library, but when i click the drop down arrow on the left of the screen it still shows itunes as a folder but when i click it it just takes me back to the music library, so i guess some how the itunes folder has become the actual music library folder. this is really confusing so to better help you guys understand i will put up a link to a screen shot of the problem.

so in the pic you can see how the itunes folders and the pictures all show up in the music library, this is a really weird issue and i have no idea what i did to make that happen but can someone please tell me how to make my music library go back to normal? a way that doesnt involve me having to delete all my pictures, or my music. thanks

You can configure which folder are included with which Library, or remove ones you do not want.

See this tutorial for adding/removing library locations: (from WMP may be easiest)
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/585-library-include-folder.html?ltr=L


For example,
You have the My Pictures and Public Pictures Folders Included in the Music library.

They need to be removed from My Music library, but those same folders should be added to the My Pictures Library instead.



Hope this helps.
