Windows 7: Can't "unindex" pictures

Can't "unindex" pictures

In MWP, I removed the folder association for the Picture Library and rebooted my computer but pictures are still showing up. How do I get these pictures to not be indexed?

At the picture, right-click and select "Properties".

Below, there is this Attributes, click "Advanced".

Select whichever attributes to include or exclude.

Example: At the File attributes, then remove the tick mark in the box of "Allow this file...index.."

For group, you need to highlight those files &or pictures.
For folders, this apply to ALL files, pictures and sub folders.
It may need to confirm.

This did not work. Just to confirm, I am talking about pictures appearing in Window Media Player (WMP), not Windows Explorer.

WMP does have a Properties menu when right-clicking on a picture, but there is no Advanced tab.

I went to Windows Explorer and found a couple of the pictures, right-clicked there, and found an Advanced tab under Properties. I unchecked the named box and saved. I restarted the computer. The pictures ARE STILL showing in WMP in the Pictures Library.
