I think maybe the problem was I also had to uncheck the "Retrieve additional &information from the Internet" option in the Library tab.

Hi orangutang... When playing a song in WMP, right click at any position on the area that displays the album art and select NO VISUALIZATION and play the songs... U ll find that no jpeg files will be added to ur computer...

Regards...
