    I manualy deleted files from my Pictures folder and they are still showing in
    my library on wmp12. It will not let me delete the so called ghost files of
    files that no longer are there from my wmp12 library.

    How can I get these older photos off the list? Setting this up for a network
    PC for the family and do not want folks to see stuff like WifesBoobs, or what
    not on the list. And Hush..... most every one got some thing like this on
    there PC. LOL

    Thank you for your help.

    Have you tried to "Apply Media Info Changes" ?

    in the library goto

    "Tools" > "Apply Media Info Changes"

    If you can't find "Tools" press "Ctrl + M" then it should show up

    This seems to be a common issue in WMP 12. You might be able to get rid
    of the pictures by restoring the library: Tools - Advanced - Restore
    media library. Note that restoring the library will make you lose all
    play counts, and possibly ratings too.
