I have a problem with my windows media player coming up when i boot my computer up. It doesn't play anything, it just starts up. I think it all started when i upgraded to WMP10, but then i rollcall back to 9 and it still does it. There are no options for bringing it up when booting up. And it isn't on the start up folder. Pretty much clueless at this point. Help?

Go to Start, then Run. Type in "msconfig" into the blank, then hit enter.

When the window comes up, click on the Startup tab. You can scroll down the list of programs to see whether or not Windows Media Player 10 appears there anywhere. Some programs don't show up in the start up folder, but instead are in this part of the System Configuration and get started up anyways.

I just looked over my mp9 options tab, and I don't see anything there that would tell it to start on boot up. And you don't see it in the msconfig startup tab? This is odd. I think I would try removing and re-installing. Go to add/remove programs and remove it. Then re-install. Have you checked M$ knowledge base for info on this?

It is possible that it is caused by malware. I would try the above before persuing this.
