Why does Media PLayer 9 open by itself? I can be typing
in Word, using ICQ or even playing vieo games and it
opens for no apparent reason.

It could be checking for an upgrade, or there could be
another program that is attempting to gain access to the
Internet through WMP. First check your
Tools|options|upgrade and uncheck the upgrade
notification. Then, look over your Startup programs in
your msconfig to see if there is anything peculiar in
there that you do not want to act automatically. Finally,
go to the Windows Update and download any critical updates
that have to do with WMP. For example, WMP 7.1 has a
critical vulnerbility that allows ugly coders to gain
access to your computer through WMP 7.1.
