I bought a TOSHIBA SATELLITE A105, running WIN XP, 80GB HD, 1GB RAM.

Anyway, I have a LOT of music on here and use Windows Media Player 11 to listen/use it all.

However, the music files seem to be duplicating themselves. I delete the duplicated files, but they will just come back.
I ran all my virus scan programs and they didn't find anything wrong.

Sorry, I cant really describe this too much better. I hope they aren't taking up more HD space, Im already down to 12GB!

PLEASE java script:emoticon(':whistling:', 'smid_11')

Here's a screen shot of some of the duplicated files.(attachment)

And the files are saved in the shared music folder.

(The files actually are in the music folder more than once. I will delete the extras but they keep coming back, its not a specific song either, its usually kinda random when it comes to which files duplicate.)screen_shot.JPG

Try removing the tick for add previous deleted to library

Watch it for a while to see if it stops duplicating
