Windows XP SP2: Process doesn't end when I close

  1. I have this weird problem... For example, I opened Windows Media Player, then I close it by clicking on the "X" button on the control box. When I opened the task manager it shows "wmplayer.exe" on the Processes tab even though WMP is not listed in the Applications tab. It seems to happened to firefox.exe too.

    I do tweak my computers, but this only happens to my desktop PC and it doesn't happen to my laptop which also has the same OS and same SP. Has anyone encounter this before? I hope I can fix it soon coz it takes up a bit of my memory..
