I have disabled the service for the player but why is it enabled in the first place and how do I get rid of it? (Do not want to play media sharing at work)
It's also possible to disable the media sharing from Services
- Click "Start" and select the "Control Panel."
- Go to "Administrative Tools" and open "Services."
- Find "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" and double-click on it.
- Click "Stop" under the "General" tab and then select "Ok."
