Windows 7: WMP 12 won't delete movies!!

I just done the steps you had there and it still didn't work, the link is still. I right clicked on the link and clicked delete but nothing happens. Also If I drag more movies into wmp they go into the library fine but when I close wmp and open it again all the movies are gone except the links to the movies that are deleted.

many times you also might reboot. so what was in memory is flushed from memory.

I don't want to permanently delete the movies, just like to be able to delete the links in wmp, rename the movies then rebuild my library again. Why is it that when I add movies to the library from a folder when I close and re-open wmp he movies are gone except for the links that won't delete. Also there is no playlist to delete in the folder.

You have me by the tail. I use x86, no problems that way, and I also have a playlist in: C:\Users\Snuffy\Music\Playlists\Angels-Demons.
PS: ANGELS-DEMONS IS A VIDEO

ALL I CAN THEN RECOMMEND IS
1. OPEN CMD AS ADMIN: SFC /SCANNOW
2. RETAIL YOUR INSTALL OF WIN7.

I ran SFC /SCANNOW, and my copy of Windows 7 is retailed. Should I turn off windows media player then?
