Where did Napster come come from?

    I opened Windows Media Player today and found an icon in the player of
    something called Napster. I did not install this, and can not find it in the
    software list to remove, nor can I find any other way to remove this. I would
    like to know whether it is normal for WMP to add features of this program at
    random, or that it possibly is spyware posing as Napster. I already emailed
    Napster adminds, but if it is a trojan or something like that, what can I do
    against it?

    If this is in WMP11, it is probably just the online store that is currently
    selected. Click on the little down arrow below Napster that appears if you
    hover over Napster, it should give other options. I have mine set to show
    Media Guide as the icon.

    This happened to me also. Napster was already in the list of services in
    the drop down, but you had MSN Music selected before. Today they turned off
    the MSN Music Service, so it may have been removed from the list, and WMP
    moved down to the next item in the list, Napster.

    Ah, that explains it, thank you. I had spyware a while ago posing as iTunes
    software, so I was kinda worried.

    Could anyone elaborate more on the fact that MSN Music was "turned off" ?
    Temporarily? I never saw any notice about this occurring - Thanks.
