Windows 7: Windows Media Updating Library

Windows Media Updating Library

Is it possible to make Windows Media stop updating media library for once and for all?

I'm not talking about retrieving media information of the internet, I don't have it active and basically everything in Options has been disabled but it still updates media library every time I launch it.

I don't want pictures, videos, music and all that other stuff to be a part of the Windows Media library at all.

I want the library to be empty at all times.
I only use Win Media to Rip Cd's I buy.
