How to get rid of mfpmp.exe?

Let's talk about microsoft and their stupid mfpmp.exe that is blocking my external subtitles, stopping me from watching TV online with windows media player and so on. If I want to watch a movie, every time I have to rename mfpmp.exe. Is there any solution to this problem? Lots of people complain about Media Foundation Protected Pipeline (mfpmp) but microsoft don't care at all. If they think that this is the way to stop piracy, they are mistaken. Sometimes it's sucking too much resources.

Can't you just stop it from staring in the services panel?

Problem solved: take ownership of these files and rename them.
For example:
Now WMP and 7MC work as they should.
I forgot to tell you that you have to install k-lite codec pack or some other codec in order to get everything work. Try latest ffdshow.

i try to delete mfpmp.exe but i cant and i also try the method which i attached

Martin Luther was a great man (Don't ask a Catholic) but no it will not be boring
