Everytime I start up my system the WMP opens up
automatically. I can't find out how to stop this
happening. Any help please.

Click on the start button, click run, type msconfig, click on the
startup tab and unclick media player...

Hi John,

This is caused by spyware called iedll.exe, a BHO (browser helper objet).
Read up on it and how to remove it:
