Windows 7: Same album art for different albums

Same album art for different albums

I have WMP automatically adding Music from My Music on my laptop and I have some songs that are just singles, not part of an album and they don't have album art. Never applied any and in Windows Explorer, it doesn't show an album art. In WMP, it shows one and it's annoying because it's an album art that has nothing to do with the song. All the singles in 'My Music' have the same album art is it isn't assigned an album art.

Is there anyway to fix this? I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to change the tags so I can delete the album art. It's very annoying...

To change the tags in WMP library, simply right click the part you want to change and Edit

I have no idea why WMP12 does that with album art, but the most simple solution is to find the album art on the internet and embed it into the file. Wikipedia is always a good start for most genres, Metal Archives for metal genres.

WMP 12 is moving/combining albums
My WMP 12 library is acting up. It is taking albums by different artists (sometimes the whole album, sometimes just a single song) and combining them together into one big album called "Unknown Album" by "Unknown Artist". Any album/song it takes no longer exists anywhere else in the library... a...
