How do I stop a door from rattling once it's closed?

I bought a house a year ago and the master bedroom door was off due to putting a new floor in. I hung the door and it swings and close fine, however, once closed, the door has some play in it that if the windows are open and the wind blowing slightly, it makes the door rattle in that play. How do I fix that so the door closes snug?

    You can buy a self adhesive rubber strip that run around the whole frame of the door. You put it on the inside where the door touches the frame. You buy it in long rolls.

    You can adjust the striker plate closer to the stop (thin strip of wood that the door closes against.

    Zard has got it. Adjust the strike plate so the door is snug against the stop molding.
