Since installing Windows 7 Home Premium, there are a number of unknown items which have appeared in my Windows Media player. When I try to delete them I get a message saying that I need permission from TrustedInstaller to do this. How do I access this programme to get rid of these items?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

They are single items of only around 23 - 39kb which say under 'type' as MID and named as flourish, onestop and town.

ok so they are small midi fle ,likely used by other programs on the computer , wmp may have scaned computter for all file types ,do a start /search for one and see where it loated.

edit ,just searhed my winxp for Floorish and it has it and it in c:/windows/media,so im guessing its used by windows sounds schemes

Tried search but nothing comes up. They are obviously harmless and very small but I just wondered why they were there.
Thanks anyway!

if you open mycomputer and go to C:\Windows\Media you will see them all ,they are windows file like i said before ,for windows sound schemes , they were likely there because you told wmp to search your harddrive for music files ,thats the only way they would have gotten there .

Now I've got it caperjack, they are a list of all the sounds associated with the actions on the computer - welcome, beep etc.
Thanks a lot.
