By default, Windows 7 automatically turns on a lot of background services which are thought to be important for the operating system itself. The issue with this feature is that a lot of such services are not needed at all. Furthermore, they use a lot of computer resources, thus compromising the system speed. One of the most “resource-thirsty” services is wmpnetwk.exe which is used by Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service to share Windows Media Player libraries. Let’s see how to disable it and save precious and important resources.
- Click Start.
- In the Search field, type services.msc and hit Enter.
- In the Services Microsoft Management Console, right-click Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service and click Properties.
- Under Startup Type, click the drop down menu.
- Click Disable.
- Restart the computer for the change to take effect.
