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 HELP!!!

Can you confirm via Explorer that WMP11 is actually creating additional files? Or are the duplicates confined to WMP11's Library?

yes i went 2 C/Documents And Settings/All Users/Music and there were actually 2 or 3 of each file.
Some haven't doubled. Others Have. They are actually taking up HD space for each one of the duplicated files. However there was a comment before you with a suggestion that seems to be working.I think this topic should be closed and I'll just open another if it starts messing up again. Thanks anyway!!! :whistling:
