WMP 11 CPU usage
Hi !
Sometimes when I close WMP, it closes the window but starts using 100% CPU
and it seems it will never stop, so I have to kill its process... My Vista is
up to date, but I disabled some services to improve performance (as of
sharing services for WMP), maybe it come from here, but I doubt ^^.
Anybody else encountered the same problem ??

RE: WMP 11 CPU usage
Hi Khan,

Although I don't have WMP running at 100% I will say the performance is poor

My system is:

-DELL D820 Laptop
-1.8 GHz Centrino Duo
-2 GB DDR2 667 MHz running dual channel
-100 GB 7200 RPM hard disk
-NVIDIA Qudrao NVS120 512 (256 MB on board video ram, 256 MB shared)

Now I admit my video card is not great, but even playing mp3s there is about
a 10 sec delay when starting them from Windows explorer, or 5 sec delay when
starting within windows media player.

For faster performance I use WinAMP although I do prefer the WMP interface
if it could be faster that would be great!

Any tips on optimizing windows media performance would be great!

RE: WMP 11 CPU usage
I also have a problem with WMP so i have switched to winamp.

My problem is that when im playing music/video and i close media player, the
media carrys on playing the sound in the background. I check my process list
and media player is still there using 1-5% cpu so i always have to close it
manually.

Then i also have this stupid "mfpmp.exe" which from a google search tells me
its DRM in windows vista. It uses 10% CPU when media player is playing media
that isnt even protected by DRM. Very bad by MS.
