Windows 7: Windows media player network sharing service configuration application

Windows media player network sharing service configuration application

Sorry for the big tittle
Now I noticed that when i open my task manager sometimes just randomly windows media player network sharing service configuration application runs, but not only 1 there is 5-6 of them all taking about the same amount.
I tried looking online for tutorials i tried disabling it in registry in the processes tab but nothing would work. I don't even need to turn my wmp12 on the process starts just by itself and its really irritating.
I am running a small home network with 2 pc one on windows 7 and one on xp but the funny thing is that even if the second one is off this process starts by itself.
I am running Windows 7 Professional x64
Windows media player 12

Thank you for all your help in advance

This is a feature to share media between different computers on the same network, and with other devices as well. If you are not using this features you can disable it.

Start> In search box type services.msc> Enter> Double click on Windows media player network sharing service



Click on Startup type and set to Disabled



Click Apply and OK your way out.

Sad to report that it is still happening.
I was just playing some game and when i exited after a couple of minutes, turned on my task manager and i saw it turned on 6 times, 6 processes of the same thing
I really don't know what to do next.

Just a random thought, do you have the Media sharing turned off on the XP machine too?

On the Win 7 machine go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\HomeGroup and Uncheck music and pictures. You may have to reboot to have it take effect.

Another thing to try. Type msconfig in Search and hit enter, go to the startup tab and make sure this service in unchecked here as well. Sometimes those checks in startup override the settings in services.

Thank you I did remove the checks on pictures and music and videos in the homegroup settings now to disable the sharing on the other computer.
In msconfig everything that has to do with wmp sharing is disabled and unchecked
Will report back with the results
Thank you!

Try doing this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker if it's OK it will report no integrity violations found. If it says file corruptions found but can't repair, reboot and run it again, up to three times.

The next thing would be to do Repair Install
