Thanks hamluis, them wanting to know my ISP and accessing my computer every 90 days gives me the creeps, all I'm doing is playing a video ???? I can use my Real Player and Riva FLV with no ridiculous requests, what really bothers me is why won't they let me use the old WMP I don't even want version 11
