    I just upgraded to MediaPlayer 9. Now when I start my
    computer (Windows 2000), MediaPlayer automatically starts
    up. How can I stop this from happening?

    Click Start -> Run -> type "regedit", browse to
    and delete the Windows Media Player key.
    You may also want to check
    if you don't find anything in HKCU.

    Has anybody ever *had* a WMP key under the "Run" registry key? WMP wouldn't
    put one there. I'd love to know - whatever app that is making WMP run on
    start-up is torquing me off. WMP very deliberately never sets itself to run
    on system start-up, so it's obnoxious that some other app is making WMP run
    on start-up. :-\

    Also, "msconfig" may help.
