    How do I stop WMP11 from changing all my files? Every time I open it, it
    starts downlaoding pictures automatically and changing all my id3 info
    without my permission. I literally spent months getting the id3 tags right
    and wmp11 has ruined them all in about 10 minutes. In the options I have
    unchecked everything to stop this but it doesn't matter. As soon as wmp opens
    it just does what it wants.

    Please specify "changing all id3 info". Which ID3 tags does it change?
    What program did you previously use to tag the files?

    In WMP's Options - Library, is "Retrieve additional information from the
    Internet" unchecked?

    Regarding the automatic creation of album art files, you can disable
    that with a registry tweak:
