Artist tag that cannot be deleted

Post by ashishg »

I don't seem to remember doing anything specific but suddenly after tagging operation on one song, all my songs which had Artist field empty have this web address (HTTP://WWW.Ansarimusic.Net) in Artist and Album Artist field. Song I was editing was downloaded from this website but that's not unusual. Even strange part is that I cannot delete this tag!! If I delete the tag from a song, change the view, and see song, tag is still there. This has never happened before. Further, this artist doesn't show up in Artist tree node, in fact, these songs show up under "Unknown" artist. Field seem to be empty if I see on Windows explorer (artist column, file properties). Why just in MM view then?

Using Windows XP with MM2.5.5.998

ETA: Computer has been scanned for any virus and there doesn't seem to be one.

Thank you very very much. This is the first time I found something abnormal with MM, thankfully with easy way out.
