Windows 7 Professional 64

That application "web browser" fiasco in my original post only happened once. Which in the applications section of Task manager, right clicking "go to process" led me to Skype.exe. Which after doing research I discovered Skype uses ielowutil.exe which is related to Interet Explorer services. After the promt my skype closed. Thats all I could find though and from remembering what happened.

Officially however I can't find anything related of the two (skype and that Web browser promt) on the skype forums or anywhere. So I'm still not sure what it is entirely.

WMP briefly opens in "Library" then switches to "Now Playing"
Well, can't get more specific than the title. This little anomaly happened sometime this afternoon probably when I downloaded Spotify. Anyway, when I open Windows Media Player I usually expect to be taken straight to the Library by default. Not anymore. Now I get a brief, momentary flash of the...
