Windows Media Player v9 opens up immediately after bootup. I attempt to close it using the X or exit from drop down menu with no luck..it reopens. My only solution has been to minimize it to the taskbar, but it will not close. I have uninstalled it twice and rebooted, (Uninstalled it through the "remove Windows components in Control Panel/Add Remove programs)but its still there when I reboot and continues this behavior. Even though it is minimized...I get a green lettered message on the screen every few seconds that says "Play/Pause". I can do other things while this is going on...but this is extremely annoying and obviously slows down my computer. How can I get rid of the problem? I have tried everything I can think of. Don't know what to look for in the registry, etc. Have looked through all help websites to find solution with no luck. Haven't found another soul with the same problem. Any suggestions???
