7.22.10 Resetting the WMP library this way doesn’t work

Oops. Fat fingered that. I used the “3” step method.
In any case, my WMP is back to what it should be.
Thanks again!

I think I went to nearly a hundred other sites looking for help and none of them worked before I found this, which worked the very first time and in less than 2 minutes. Much appreciated.
