Unless you really want Windows Media Player to support the SDMI protocol, disable it. Look here under MsPMSPSv.exe. click here.

could you expand a little further please as this has only recently started happening but seems to be getting worse?

Hi johnnyrocker. The article I linked to is discussing security vulnerabilities. It says that WMDM PMSP Service is part of MsPMSPSv.exe, Windows Media Device Manager Pre-Message Security Protocol Service, and most users do not use any of the SDMI features of Windows Media Player. Therefore if it is giving you problems, I think the best thing is to turn it off. That is the limit of my knowledge of the subject.

one funny thing though after my messing about i received a security update from microsoft and since thenit has seemed to run ok will advise any updates but tick for now.
