How the hell do you turn this damn Media Player thing off? It's always on my new windows7 and I hate it! I need some help here please! It's some sort of Yahoo/Rhapsody pop out thing that's on the left of my screen.

yahoo media player is a music player for websites and not the same player as the rhapsody thing you mention.

however to stop it starting on boot try hitting the start button (windows key) and typing: msconfig

then hit enter.

click on the startup tab and look for some reference similar to whatever it's name is and uncheck that item.

failing that try uninstalling it from the control panel
