    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.
