Windows 7: Deleted items showing in WMP

Deleted items showing in WMP

There were many albums in my WMP that I haven't listened to in ages so I decided to clear things up. Went to the music folder and simply deleted all the ones I wanted gone. However they still show in WMP!? If I click on a particular artist (that was deleted) it opens and list all the albums and tracks but they get red-flagged if I try to play them.

I have tried:
  • Deleting them in WMP too
  • Shutting down WMP and restarting.
  • Rebooting PC
  • Deleting the library and then re-adding it.
None of that worked. What can I do?

Deleted Items while Installing 7
Last night I decided to buy and install Windows 7. It seems to be working pretty well. One thing that I am baffled by, is when I tried to install 7, I was told to remove Web Drive and Intel PROSET/Wireless or risk having problems. Are these 2 systems vital to my computer and how can I re-install...
