Once I could breath again
I navigated to C\users and found my Pictures and Videos under C\Users\Dell, right clicked and chose Include in Library. Whew!
I had already tried the Restore options but that didn't put all the files back in the library like I assumed it would.
I've got EVERYthing under the Library tab in WMP Tools/Options UNchecked but turned on the computer today to find it updating the program. Under the Player tab, there is an Automatic Update (once a day, week or month) option but no option to never update. Under the same tab, I have "connect to the internet" unchecked.
