In the first documented case of a Microsoft product ever speeding anything up the folks at WoW Insider have found some evidence that running Windows Media Player in the background actually helps increase the performance of World of Warcraft.  I'm a bit flabbergasted by this as Media Player isn't exactly the most resource friendly application in the world but it looks like this actually works.

Thanks to Joystiq for the info.
