my windows media player pops up randomly when it's not being used and when i close it it wont stay closed. when music is playing it jumps from song to song at random times. i doesn't always happen but it's frequent
Try this, I've seen this work as a solution for many people with this same problem!
1. Press start,
2. In search bar write, "msconfig" (no quote mark's), press enter,
3. Go to services and look for Windows Media entry's, uncheck one box at a time and press apply, then reboot, keep going until you find the culprit.
