The only thing which occurred was the original files in My Music on the first use of WMP added back and nothing else.Even if this workaround was effective, it seems pretty micky mouse considering that you have to manually remove all files, which could be comprehensive, then add them back in again to result in failure anyways.All it needed was about 5 minutes of patience amongst the other apps I have running simutaneously. I find other products, and yes I will say it, like Win AMP to provide further lag on a system than WMP.And if there is an issue, there are so many easy to find and apply solutions online.So instead of finding something else right away and researching it. This seems to be the theme for a lot of MSFT titles. WMP is a big effort on their part and since I'd rather not have to fix it so often I use other titles.
