Windows Media Player Still Playing When I Close It

maybe this might help some people narrow thier search. Make sure that wmplayer.exe and any other service starting with wmp has been halted via TaskManager then begin to regsvr32 all of the above listed files. DO YOU NEED IT? grrr.....I'm running the same system with a logitech MX 518 optical mouse. http://roguewb.com/windows-media/windows-media-player-forced-to-close-when-playing-dvd-s.html

Anyway, I recently bought a Network Attached Storage unit with Media Server built in, so I was able to turn the media sharing in WMP off.Guess What??No more problem with WMP.  It I'll second this solution. Then scroll down to line that say (Start the mini player for file names that contain this text), if checked, uncheck this line, then click apply & ok. i do have firefox, as well as dualscreensetup. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/090d02ac-ed23-4a13-901f-007cc233073a/windows-media-player-11-keeps-playing-after-closed?forum=itprovistaapps

by R. Another solution is: While Media Player is open, bring up Task Manager and end the program. I do exit the WMP without ending the track.

Worked for me. I didn't even have to reboot the pc, media player closed no problem after i deselected the check box in windows slideshow box in control panel. Like I said, I don't know if it'll work but it's worth a shot lol. –bschultz Jan 27 '12 at 22:23 add a comment| 2 Answers 2 active oldest votes up Kees Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Still WMP running by wildbird / December 19, 2011 5:46 PM PST In reply to: So ...

Was already unchecked. Once I unchecked that option from the Toolbars menu the wmplayer.exe closes after I exit from the program.I hope this helps anyone because I was going insane at some points trying Sunday, August 15, 2010 9:31 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote I have been experiencing the same problem.

After searching online for some time I didn't find any help. I suppose that the problem with wmplayer is because it can not receive WM_CLOSE message or something similar and stays permanently running.   The issue is purely Microsoft's, they have to windows-vista-7-8 6Contributors 7Replies 8Views 8 YearsDiscussion Span 5 Years Ago Last Post by kumarsaravanan 0 PcPro12 3 8 Years Ago Yes, when you close media player you click the red X How well could a dog pick out the scent of a single person in a pool of carnage?

COM does not know that you will never be using the player again, so it cannot close the process. http://roguewb.com/windows-media/windows-media-player-not-playing-sound.html Proposed as answer by EvoGamer Saturday, March 21, 2009 12:56 AM Wednesday, March 04, 2009 11:47 PM Reply | Quote 1 Sign in to vote Whilst I appreciate this is a What does it mean?

  • Personally I am realy hoping that there is some little setting in WMP that I can change which will fix this problem, but I doubt it as I have combed every
  • Please try again now or at a later time.
  • For me, the problem seems to be fixed by disabling the WMP 11 for sideshow.

The problem started after I installed a Sony NWZ S545 mp3 player. I found that when I open up WMP 11 again, the program is still playing the media file even though I closed the program.
