Windows Media in Background UPDATE

Hi,
I have the problem where WMP starts in the background and cannot be
terminated by closing the window. I have updated my sound and graphics
drivers with no difference.

Tonight I found that when investigating the wmplayer process in Process
Explorer, that the calling process was mobsync.exe the MS process for
syncing mobile devices like my iPaq.

As soon as I kill mobsync.exe then start WMP by e.g. clicking on a MP3,
WMP springs into the foreground and behaves absolutely normally with the
owning process being explorer.exe as you would expect.

If I then start mobsync.exe by starting the Mobile Sync Centre, WMP
remains owned by explorer.exe and continues to behave normally.

Why mobsync takes ownership of wmplayer.exe I have yet to find out but
at least on my PC I have found a work around and will post further
details if I can identify why this is happening (unless of course a MS
techie follows this up and gives us the answer)
