Album Art

How do I stop WMP from collecting album art? I don't want it. I don't want anything but music files in my music folder. My only concession is the playlist folder.

Open up windows media player, then navigate and Click Organize>Options>Library tab
*Automatic media information updates for files area, uncheck 'Retrieve additional information from the Internet'
IF you simply do not want media player online, go to options and uncheck everything in network and privacy tab.
Also follow the address bar in the screenshot, and make sure the circled in red are unchecked.
