First, I turned off content downloading from Windows Media Player so that I'll never again receive Album Art. I searched for hidden and system files that starts with AlbumArt*.* and Folder. Selected all of them, got to the properties and to the advanced option. Removed the check mark for Encrypt contents... and walah!!!
Deleted it and it's now gone, forever and ever.
Could you give a better description of how you did it. Sounds like something to try. Did'nt help for me to fill out all the tags.
