Windows 7: How do you stop WMP from loading all your pictures?

How do you stop WMP from loading all your pictures?

When I first loaded this drive with 7 and transferred over all of my files to it, in WMP when I hit the Pictures tab naturally all of my pictures in my users 'picture library' loaded up in it - so I did the long process of scrolling all the way down to highlight them all and delete them from the WMP library. Well now those pictures don't load in there anymore, but any picture I load off my camera to my computer or save off of the internet loads in the WMP Pictures tab, so I gotta highlight them all an delete them etc etc. Is there any way to stop this? Or take the Pictures tab off completely? I want WMP to be a music and video program only, not pictures.

Try removing that location from the WMP library:

I've done that, and when I remove it in the window you have shown - it removes my Pictures library completely, so when I go to Pictures on my OS itself, it shows that there's 'no library added' or something like that.

Hi - is it possible to add a flag (or whatever it might be called) to an .exe or the command-line to stop to stop a specific .dll from loading when an app is launched? I am not even sure I am asking the question in the right manner, but I am trying my best! :D

Is there seriously no way to stop Pictures from loading in WMP?
I use WMP for music and videos only, but there just HAS to be the Pictures tab as well that loads my entire Pictures library - I do not want this. No matter what I do it always has to reload all my pictures in that tab, which ends up freezing WMP.
