windows media player hangs

  wato 15:37 29 Dec 05

I use windows media player and it functions OK. But on closing the program it shuts down and disappears from screen OK but I notice that other programs then seem to run a bit slow!
On turning of the computer via shut down I get a program not responding message about media player which then closes after a short delay and the computer then switches its self off OK.

Obviously the media player is running in the background after its closed down!

Why is that? I always thought that programs should end completely when closed.

Is there some setting that I need to adjust to close Windows media player completely?
