    Everytime I start up Windows Media Player and try to listen to a song for
    example Hero by Mariah Carey it has like a 15 second delay to start and when
    it starts and Im half way through the song and I want to change to another
    song I double click it and it says "Media Changing" for like 10 seconds then
    it starts playing..
    All the format of my songs are .wma and PLEASE HELP ME! its very frustrating

    When you close the file, right click the playlist item that is playing and
    select to remove it after you have stopped it from playing, what might be
    the problem is WMP is attempting to lookup the file for a cover and insert
    the data to the playback item to display the cover and then when it has
    stopped the covers will appear in the folder as hidden files which you have
    to change their names by opening them preferably using irfanview image
    program and save back to a name you desire in a practicular folder which you
    can drag and drop it for viewing later that keeps it from staying a hidden
    system filespec, hard to deal with unless you delete it or run preferences
    in WMP to not access the server for them covers and data to insert each time
    a file is played. This happens in XP, I'm not sure about Vista cause my
    Vista will not let the WMP run nor my Quicktime either. Shutsdown, says WMP
    has stopped working seeking a solution for the problem, cannot find a
    solution for the problem, either program fails to work for me right now. It
    could be a permissions problem or a access problem with the VB C++ runtime
    files not accessible by either player. I am seeking help to define what is
    causing the problem.
