so ive had this problem for a few weeks now (not sure exactly when it started) with windows media player 10. i run any file, .avi, .mp3, .wma, anything, and while its playing, i click the red X to close the program as usual, but now media player seems to close, but the media keeps playing. the player is no longer anywhere on the desktop, or start menu or the bar at the bottom right (by the clock). i open the player again, and its basically like i never closed it at all. i click stop, then close the player, but then pull up the task manager, and the media player process is still running in the background. all i want is for media player to close on exit!! any help would be greatly appreciated!!
