    How can I stop Windows media player from showing in Windows Explorer when I
    select an MP3.

    Its really annoying cos when moving files around the damn player prevents
    them from being moving and also crashes explorer occasionally.

    Is there anyway to stop the activeX control from popping up when I click an
    MP3 or simply goto a folder with "mp3" in the name....?? grrr

    (why do Microsoft assume everyone wants all this crap that is "supposed" to
    help!)
