Can't delete local files that are in "liked songs" playlist.

Can't delete local files that are in "liked songs" playlist.

So i saw that there are multiple posts on this already, but i've tried all resolutions and can't find a fix for it. 

To my Problem: in my "liked songs" there it shows local files some from 2018 some from 2019 that were once added to spotify but as of now aren't existent anymore, i recently reset my PC and when i opened spotify i noticed a bunch of "Greyed Out" songs from my liked songs playlist, so i went ahead and tried to delete them, clicking the heart didn't work so i tried it with the "Delete" Button on the Keyboard and there the song goes away for like 2 seconds and comes right back, i tried deleting the "local-files" thing in the Appdata, didn't help, reinstalled spotify, didn't help either, at this point idk what to do really. I should add i only saw it since i purged my entire liked songs to clean up my spotify and the "Liked Songs" therefore doesn't show on mobile as i technically have no "liked songs".
