Yep, A Windows Media Player 11 Entry.....
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 24, 2007 7:47 AM PDT

It's the "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service Configuration" utility and isn't really necessary unless you share media stuff over the network.

Try following the solution in the link below.. (After clicking on the link, look to the left side and click on #10 James Dooley) and follow the instructions for turning off the .exe file.

See Post # 10

Hope this helps.

Hi Griff
Yes I do share my media files over the family network so I guess I had better keep it.
Thank you for your time Griff I was a bit concerned about it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
