"I know it may not be what you want to hear.. but the best solution for misbehaving programs is often to not use them. Have you tried Media Player Classic?

A software firewall can help, look for one that can block outgoing (instead of just incoming) connections. Programs still try to connect with this solution, however, and may not work."
