    I have WMP10.

    Whenever I start it and begin to play really long playlists of music for a
    long time, and then I attempt to close WMP10, I get a message saying that
    file are being converted (or something like that) and if I'm sure I want to
    stop it. I never commanded the player to convert any files. It does this on
    its own. And usually when my pc starts slowing down while I listen to music,
    I bring up the Task Manager and see that wmpenc.exe is there.

    Also, I have the CREATIVE Digital MP3 Player and whenever I try to
    synchronise it with WMP10, the conversion keeps on failing. It converts some
    files and then suddenly stops and won't continue to convert any more files as
    it attempts to do so. And I left it on for about 3 hours for the conversion
    but there was no progress.

    Please help me with this important issue I need resolved ASAP.

    Thank you.

    I have the same problem Savvas21. Wmpenc, windows media player encoder, I
    think its called, keeps starting on its own whenever I have wmp 10 started.
    It takes almost 100% of system resources and even though I end the process,
    it starts up by itself moments later. I've tried reinstalling windows media
    player but that dosen't help. I used to have a Rio Carbon so I think that the
    software windows media player 10 uses to handle the various mp3 devices is
    corrupted and causing wmpenc to start. All I have to figure out is repair the
    problem files (if thats possible). If anybody knows the solution to this
    irritating problem please help. Thanks.
