Rebuilding Broken WMP11 Library?!?

I had posted earlier that all of my music files had just suddenly disappeared
out of my library. It won't keep any of the music I select and drag to the
playlist box from the file folder it's stored in AND it won't recognize my
MP3 player either.
Someone posted this website http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html#medialibrary
Apparently it's a corruption of the library.
Since I'm not a computer wiz... could someone please put this into
"In WMP11 on XP, the library is per user and can be found at
"%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media
Player\CurrentDatabase_360.wmdb". In some extreme cases (such as when you can
not add any folders to be scanned in the supplied dialog) you would need to
shut down WMP and stop the "Window Media Player Network Sharing Service".
Then you would need to rename the folder "%USERPROFILE%\Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player". At that point WMP should
work correctly again.
In WMP10, the library is per user and can be found at "%USERPROFILE%\Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\CurrentDatabase_219.wmdb".
You can first try renaming the file. If that doesn't work, create a second
user account. That user should have a working library in WMP. Copy that
user's library over to your original user account, and you should be working
