Unable to delete podcast in iTunes for the PC

I have a unwanted broken podcast in my iTunes that will not delete when I do a “Delete From Library.” I had a similar issue with another podcast but was finally able to remove it by going to the store and re-subscribing. After an episode downloaded I was then able to remove it. That does not work with this podcast. Trying to subscribe from the store does nothing. I also cannot download any episodes but they stream fine from the feed. As far as I can tell none of the files remain on my local disk and the directory is no longer in the podcast directory.

Are there any tricks or tools that will help me remove this podcast?

Thanks

If you Right Click it and choose Get Info and go to the File section, where does it say it resides? Directory? Stream?

Quick Guesses:
Highlight the episode, hold Shift and Tap the Delete key.
Try setting your library to delete played episodes for that podcast and mark it played. It should delete in 24 hours.
Copy any mp3 file to the directory where it says it resides. Rename the MP3 to be the episode name. Set the ID3 tags to look like the episode. Then go into iTunes to delete it.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
