I have W& 64 bit. Also the latest free Malawarebytes. I use itunes for music rather than Media player, which I rarely use except maybe for DVD's.I ran a custom scan yesterday and noted that Malawarebytes scanned for ages hundreds of .jpeg files in C:\Windows\Service Profiles\Network Service\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player\Art Cache\LocalMLS
When I try to delete this in C:\Users\Username\microsoft\AppData\Local\Microsoft\ Media Player Folder it says "Programme in use by another programme"
Or the folder is empty!
Probably your 'picture library' showing up in WMP. Open file explorer, find Libraries in the tree, right click Pictures (library) and check the locations. You can add or remove these locations. Possibly Malwarebytes is checking the same files multiple times.
Also in WMP check what jpegs are showing. You still have the choice of removing from libraries or PC or both, so be careful what you choose.
In WMP when I right click Pictures Library, It correctly shows the location of my pictures. The vast majority are in my (F) (Data) Partition in F/My Documents/ My Pictures. There are a few small amounts elsewhere. In the "Normal" Windows Explorer Library, the same thing shows. I use Adobe Photoshop and Bridge to view and manage my pictures, and I wonder why the scan shows them in the location in my first post? Do you think they are somehow duplicated? I wonder why they are in WMP at all - I am a bit scared to lose them if I delete the wrong thing (not a total disaster as I regularly back up all data to a second (and third!) drive.
Yes, Libraries all show nearly all my .jpegs are in my F/My Documents/My Pictures/ folder (Data Partition.) This phenomenon only occurred when I did a custom scan , not with the Malawarebytes quick scan. I will have another look tomorrow.
