I Google'd it several times and the fixes would work, but not for very long before they problem started again. I tried drivers and all kinds of stuff. Made sure my Chrome didn't have a Google Music extension (common cause of this bug).
I solved this problem by closing iTunes. After that my media keys work perfectly again. While iTunes was open it was trying to retake control of the media keys like some kind of nazi every few seconds. Which is why the fixes worked, but not for long.
So if your media keys don't work in spotify close whatever over music player shit you have open, yo.

Recently I started getting a lot of screen tearing in Netflix, especially when full screen. This only started happening recently and Google wasn't much help.
The fix for me was to go to
System properties > performance settings > adjust for best performance
Something about Windows Aero being enabled let's Windows process video better.

Open itunes, let it hang like normal.
Open a chat program called Digsby, must trigger some kind of library. Now a blank white itunes window opens and I can't get to my desktop.
Open taskmanager and kill itunes related process (ituneshelper, ipod stuff, distnote, etc).
After that itunes opened almost right away and seems to be "ok"

I found a solution to the problem of Windows using its own drivers for my phone, now I never have any problem getting ADB apps to find my device - props to Nephron over at XDA -. Assuming you have already installed Android SDK :Take the "android-sdk-windows" folder and move it to the root of your hard drive (C:\)
Right click on My Computer and click propertiesSelect the Advanced Tab or Advanced System Setting (Vista/Windows 7)Select Environment Variables...Press New
For Variable Name type: adbFor Variable Value type: C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
Worked perfectly for me.
There's nothing wrong with Extro's suggestion above.. just saying this is what worked for me
