emansnas Posted September 24, 2009 Share Posted September 24, 2009 I'm here because a similar problem to the one I'm having was resolved (thanks to Tarun) on this forum under subject: 'WMP service continues to run after closing', on 18 June 2008. The symptoms I'm having are pretty much identical to those in subject post with maybe the following differences: It only happens when playing .wmv files and the WMP service doesn't run on quite as long after closing WMP, it usually varies between 1 and 6 seconds (still annoying since WMP can't be restarted during this time). The problem started after installing a large Windows update. I tried using the resolution in subject post but disabling UPnP along with Windows Media Network service did not cure the problem as it did in subject post. Maybe on my machine WMP calls some other process. Hopefully my similar problem can be resolved - I'm starting from scratch as far as logs or dumps are concerned but will take whatever steps are advised.
