The program remained in the Process Manager.
My solution.
Delete the plugin "d_WMDM.dll".
But why this Plugin? I tried the error to 3 PCs to reproduce. no success.
I hope that help you.
Probably this:

Well I don't want to sound cheerful yet, but this new plugin move seems to have done the deal.
How on earth do you come up with these ideas anyway? :o

Thank you!!! As the pirate reminisced of his steering-wheel-codpiece: this was driving me nuts!

Can devs please ask all of you for small debug so that we can make fix instead of using hack/workaround?

Hint: When you create Debug Log We only need lines that are in the middle of two "-------" lines and one of lines contain word "Exception".

Just adding that I too have the same issue. Right now I have 3 MediaMonkey.exe running in Task Manager > Processes!
They're not listed in Applications, just Processes.
If I start another instance of MM, it just hangs on "Reading tracks..."
I can't even do a "Close Process Tree" on them. Only option is to reboot.
Files are on a local drive.

Win XP sp3, MediaMonkey_3.1.0.1256

That is really strange You should always do END TASK or END PROCESS TREE.

hey, I think I might know what's causing this problem. anyway i had the same problem and I did exactly what you said, and it worked for me. d_WMDM i figured probably has to do with Windows Media DRM files. Anyway, on this install of XP that I'm running media monkey on right now, I basically broke the windows DRM support on the computer as a hack to remove the DRM from certain files I needed to play on an iPod (audio books). Anyway, that's my theory as to what's causing the hanging when mediamonkey closes.

The plugin d_WMDM.dll also appeared to cause MM to continue running in the background on my system. Deleting it fixed it.
