XP/Vista 32 bit/Win 7 hp 64 bit
wmpnetwk gets 50% of CPU

I run win 7 Home Premium in dual boot mode, 32 bit on one drive and 64bit on the other.

Iether boot can access my modem and wireless router when running the Lan enables my notebook to share files with my desktop PC.

The notebook is not present at the moment, but I noticed the wmpnetwk.exe is running all the time and is using 50% of CPU time, which slows other things down. The only way I can find to reduce this CPU usage is to turn off all sharing on both boots.
The modem is a NetComm NB6 and the router a Dlink DI 524

Is this what should normally happen when sharing is enabled?
