There's still the "Rip folder" which can't be ignored or removed apparently. If you check 'my folders and those of others I can access', it will monitor all the folders in C:\Documents and settings for which you have permission, so actually rather more folders than just 'my personal folders'.
But since I never use WMP to "rip" anything I suppose that doesn't matter? I suggest your revert to 'my personal folders' My advice was not to use the monitored folders that you can't delete, i.e.
don't use the special My Music, My Videos, My Pictures folders in your My Documents folder.
Note: We realise that after almost six months in the wild, Windows 7 is far from cutting edge, but if you're still under the misconception that Windows Media Player has nothing worthwhile to offer, do yourself a favour and read on.
Early on, Winamp used to be the go-to media player of the day, until one day, I started finding new releases of the program a little too bloated for my taste.

By Andy Rathbone Take control of your Windows Media Player 12 experience by managing its library.
Media Player 12 automatically sorts through your libraries’ stash of digital music, pictures, videos, and recorded TV shows, automatically cataloging everything into Media Player’s own library.
The first album was found correctly and is found in the library. I can browse to the missing album and play it but it isn't in the library with the rest of the artists music. The album did come in at first but was missing 3 songs.
I deleted it from the library (made sure it was still on the server) restarted Media Player hoping that it would refresh and find the full album.
2) Tell Windows Media Player to stop monitoring your Pictures library.
