Windows 7: WMC refuses to remove some movies

WMC refuses to remove some movies

Hello all.

I had some duplicate movies showing in WMC so I went through the steps that I found online to delete the cache and they were still showing. So I removed all the folders from all the libraries and deleted the cache again. Now all of my libraries in WMC except movies are empty. in Movies I have 64 movies left (I think they were all the duplicates). How can I get rid of these?? I checked WMP and it's movies list is empty (they use the same libraries don't they?). I've cleared any caches I can find DVDinfo cache, artwork cache. Rebooted. They still persist.

Try checking the folders that WMP monitors for its library. (Right click on Videos in WMP library page then Manage)

Remove the folders it monitors so its blank, close WMP and try MC again.

Also check your pictures folders as any vids found in pictures shows up in Video Library.
