I've been having some problems with Windows Media Player. The controls will sometimes freeze up, it randomly stops playing songs, and takes awhile to load up or shut down. I've recently noticed that wmplayer.exe is always present in Task Manager, even though I haven't started Media Player. When I choose "End Process", it immediately restarts itself. Wmplayer.exe also seems to be using quite a bit of memory in Task Manager: 23368k as of right now. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

eta: I'm running Vista 32bit, with Zone Alarm, Avast and Threatfire
