This causes music to continue playing even after i've closed the program, and the only way to actually get rid of it is to open task manager, go to processes, and end it's process.
Thankfully, I don't use WMP to play music with, and I use iTunes. So my problem here is that WMP isn't saving settings when I close it (End it's process). More specifically, a plug-in that I turn on, doesn't stay enabled. I want to turn on the "Windows Live Messenger Music Plugin", as this needs to be turned on in WMP for it to Messenger to recognise the songs iTunes is playing.
Any ideas on how to get my WMP acting normally?
EDIT: I had an idea for a workaround. I started up WMP, enabled the plugin. I didn't close WMP but hit the start button and restarted my computer - forcing Windows to close it's program itself, not me. When I started my PC back up, the plugin was still enabled.
So, i've fixed half my problem. I still don't like having to use workarounds to run my computer, so any other advice is still welcome.
FURTHER EDIT: Okay, my 'workaround' didn't totally work. WMP still says the plugin is enabled, but it doesn't work on MSN.
And just so you know that I can actually use this plugin with iTunes & MSN.. If I open WMP, enable the plugin, and then close it & end the process, If MSN is on, and iTunes is playing a song when I end the process, THAT song will come up on msn. The problem here is that that one song will stay there, and won't change when the song changes, or go away when I stop the song. Only by turning off 'what i'm listening to' can I get it to go away.
