Good morning everybody,

I am having problems with my Vista @ work.

Windows media player opens itself and pops up constantly putting itself in front of all programs running.

If i minimize WMP then it pops up again.

At first I though maybe something was jammed on my keyboard or my macros set to my mouse but its neither.

It's also wierd because i cannot find it in my uninstall list.

This problem is beggining to be a headache, and I called our tech guy to come fix the problem but he is clueless on this problem.

Any help that anybody could give me would be greatly appreciated :huh: !!!

Thanks,
Jake

Go into "Services" and set it to manual or disabled.

Go to start > click on all programs, click on accessories, click on run, then type services.msc in the box. Click ok and the services window should pop up.

** note: You may have to 'run as Administrator'.

I went into those settings and disabled them all (the media ones).

Still pops up even with those disabled.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this problem?

Reboot and see if you still get the popups.
