Media player opening on start up

How do I prevent Windows Media Player (WMP) from opening on startup (booting up computer)? WMP launches each time I start the computer and cannot find how to stop this. I have looked in msconfig and msinfo32 but no help!

thanks Les

Have you looked at Start/All Prorams/Accessories/Start, if there is an Icon there Delete it, although I would have thought that if it is starting WMP would appear in msconfig start.

Start (Startup) might be in All programs not accessories, but it will be there somewhere.

I am going through all msconfig startup items one by one see if I can find it that way!
I have closed them all and its stopped opening
