Well I deleted the virus but it was hidden and stored in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player. It said something about Wallon virus detected. But its all good now.

Same problem as Rosebud!

Is anyone still here monitoring this thread? I have the same problem as Rosebud. I have created playlists and can find them among my files on the computer, yet WMP does not list them under the playlist category. I have all the proper "boxes" checked and have cleared my cache and tied to rebuild the database as well but every time I close WMP the playlists do not show up. I have even moved things around and tried to reorganize what files are being monitored. I am now going to check out the malware download and see if that helps.

ETA: no virus-any suggestions?
