Win Media Player-XP Constantly opens iteself

What would cause the Windows Media Player to keep opening itself, eventhough you X or tell it to STOP, and it keeps reloading itself. Have removed it from Add/remove programs Version 11, it gathered the prior 9, and it still it rebooting itself, opening. You cannot read mail, send mail, or work in any programs, or go to ay websites.
I did contact MS but they wre of no help. A friend told me (computer wise) to go to add/remove programs, and on the 3rd group down on left side, go to Windows Compnents, and uncheck Windows Media Player, which I did, and now it finally stopped.
I had not played media player in months, this started last 2 weeks, going nuts. I need for this to open, when I want it, and not when it wants to constantly open, so I can see IRS Tax forums.
I have Wind XP Home service Pack 2 (build 2600) edition; Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Display adapter; 1.67 GHz AMD Athlon XP; 384 combined primary/secondary memory cache; 512 meginstalled memory modules (I don't know what else you need to know)
Thanking you kindly, Helene
