I have a client who uses Windows Media Player 12 in Windows 7.
Recently (he doesn't know exactly when), his Playlist list suddenly includes the names of many non-music folders (his Simply Accounting, for example), from his Documents folder.
If you right-click the playlist and select Open File Location, you can see they are documents in random folders (looks like from Documents).
Occasionally you can see a status message at the bottom of WMP saying (can't remember the exact message) that it is scanning a folder for updates, and the folder it is scanning is *not* Music, but rather the c:\Users\Owner folder, one level above Music, Documents, etc. Is this normal?
I can find no settings at all about where WMP looks for music or playlist location, etc. Can anyone help?
