    hi..
    Stop a program from running automatically when Windows starts
    You can improve your computer's performance by preventing unnecessary programs from running automatically when Windows starts. Here's how:

    • Open Windows Defender by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Defender.
    • Click the Tools button, and then click Software Explorer.
    • In the Category box, click Startup Programs.
    • Select the program that you want to prevent from running, and then click Disable.
    • Click Yes to confirm that you want to stop that program from running.
    • Repeat steps 4 and 5 for every program you want stop from running.

      Thank you.

    hiiiiii
    go to start and and in the serch type "turn windows featurs on or off"
    click on " turn windows features on or off"
    brows to the media features and un check the mark infront of windows media player
    restart the computer

    a clean boot up maay helps you to verify if any third pary application service or start up item is causing the issue
