Windows 7: Windows Media Player sharing my music without permission?

Windows Media Player sharing my music without permission?

On my machine, in Network & Sharing Centre > Advanced Sharing Settings, media sharing is disabled.

The 'Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service' is also disabled.

However, when a Vista machine was on my network, a pop-up appeared, saying "Windows Media Player found: MY-PC" (where MY-PC is the name of my machine). How can I stop this from happening?

in wmp there is a stream tab, between organize and create playlist , click it and it will open a pop up, select more options and then the allow or disallow sharing your media with " my -pc" should be in there,or the vista machine .depending which one you are using.

It was all already off (went into all three options, selecting 'off', or observing an option to 'turn on media sharing'), yet the Vista machine still gets the pop-up whenever I start WMP.

I also notice that WMP is opening a port, UDP 51631.

Windows 7 HP 64 SP1, all updates.

could it actually share the content, or is it just recognizing the computer as they were once linked in the network.
