XP, I never told you to do that!

Ok, I have a question/rant:

Why is it that Windows XP seems to 'download by itself' album art for the mp3's I have in my music folder (without me telling it to do so)?

Does anyone know of anyway to get it to stop doing this, or anyway to delete the images (I only know they are there because people can see them in my folders on Soulseek).

Ok, I found out it is something Windows Media Player does (you have to go into options and turn it off).

Now, does anyone know how I can get rid of all those files??? (you cant view them if you just open the folder)

Maybe they're in your temporary internet files? Try deleting those.

i think it's a online licensing software that authenticates your MP3... or something rather.

Yeah, I found out the newer versions of Windows Media Player does that. I turned it off.

I also deleted my temporary files.

Thanks for the help everyone






I'm obsessed with thumbs upping
