    This is WMP 12 on Windows 7, right?

    'Ghost' songs or videos in the library are a common problem with WMP 12.
    What exactly happens when you right-click the deleted videos in the
    library and select Delete again?

    You should be able to get rid of them by restoring the media library,
    through Tools - Advanced - Restore media library (press Ctrl+M if you
    don't see the Tools menu).
    Note that restoring the library will make you lose all current play
    counts, and possibly ratings too.

    Go to


    and delete the windows media player folder

    make sure WMP is closed while doing this.

    ps: im not sure if the windows media player folder is in the Roaming folder
    or in the Local folder
