just done that & now when i reboot as it says i get the message "Sys Config utility - is in Diagnostic or Selective startup mode - please choose normal" if i do that it reticks Media player..?? what do i do ?
For the simplest solution try doing a System Restore to a time/point before you had the player startup problem.
If the above is not an option/possibility, try this:
To remove the Media player startup item for good you'll need to navigate to the appropriate key/subkey in the registry & delete it from there. Be very CAREFUL while working in the registry & ONLY delete the value(s) I've mentioned below. Don't change or delete anything else.
Click on Run & RunOnce. In the right pane, right-click the Media player entry & click Delete.
Close Registry Editor & reboot.
Hopefully that should cure it. If not, there may be a more sinister reason for the player loading at startup, like a recent Win update changing/corrupting certain files. First do what I've said above & we'll take it from there...
[I'm hoping there's a simpler, surer way to solving your problem(s) & someone will come to the rescue!]
Don't take any notice of the little box that comes up with the warning, put a tick in the box that says "don't show me this again" it's quite normal and you have cured your problem. The box with the warning will not appear again unless you decide to stop something else loading, It does not effect the running of the computer unless you stop one of the services. Also make sure that your firewall & antivirus are ticked to load in msconfig.
