ok, it's not the end of the world, just a real big annoyance. the playlist itself doesn't exist. i deleted it, emptied the recycle bin.... it is GONE. but WMP doesn't think so. it still shows up in the playlist pane. double clicking it does nothing. nor does "open file location" or "delete" cuz it doesn't exist. yet it keeps on reappearing there and keeps on reappearing there... I WANT IT GONE! but how?
