You could use something like this, in a file which ends in .reg and launch this from a login script:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\WMPNetworkSvc]
"Start"=dword:00000004

Open in new window


This will change the start mode to Disable (4 = Disabled)

I'm sure there are some far more eloquent ways to accomplish this, but this should get you started and maybe someone else here can literate on this further.
