A file called wmpntwrk.exe is consistently using 2.5GB of RAM and runs constantly, slowing down my computer. This is Windows Media Player. Norton frequently gives me an error message saying that 'Windows Media Player Network Sharing Device has high CPU usage' or something to that effect. It is running as a process the entire time my computer is switched on, regardless of whether or not I am using this program. I have tried mucking around in the settings to no avail, so any ideas on how I can remove/disable/fix/uninstall this program would be greatly appreciated.
