Win 7 64 bit

I was having the exact same problem and it was driving me insane untill i found this thread. I just deleted the Local_mls files and not the database and that allowed me to delete the unwanted playlist and I didnt have to re-add all my music, it was all still there and my other playlists were all still intact. Thanks madtownidiot!
