I wanted to make new playlists for my music in windows 7 media player but no matter how often I right click to delete it, the playlists won't leave. There is no music on it anymore, but the names are still there as if the playlists still exist...which they don't. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the media player 12, but the lists just reappeared from no where. Help my please. The computer geeks I brought it to where I purchased the computer a few weeks ago, said they can't fix it.

if they are open somewhere else,other files,in media player,is it saying cannot delete because files are being
used ??.when you r/click them look down list try locate file/file location.i had the same problem i think i
r/click on the name and clicked remove from computer?.

You can delete the data base from
C:\Users\Username\Appdata \local\Microsoft\Mediaplayer

It won,t remove the files just the playlists and library content database then WMP will just rebuild the DB.
