Every now and then the wmpnetwk.exe kicks on, my laptop freezes, and I have to go into performance manager to shut it off. I share my media with another computer in the house and would like to keep the program on/or available. I don't want it to run ALL the time, just when the other computer needs to access my shared media. It uses over 2 million KB when it's on.
A. Can I set a limit on how much memory it's allowed to use when it's on?
B. Can I set it so that it only kicks on when needed?

I have Windows 7.
P.S. Don't use long words when you answer. I don't know computers. What I just wrote in my question is about 200% more than I knew two weeks ago. :)
