Hello all my Anti-Malware Buddies,I hope all is well with you!

Im in the need of some advice over an issue ive not seen before regarding WMP.
Ive just loaded up Windows Media Player and everytime i try to shut it down i get this message and the only way to close it without accepting it is to do a ctrl+alt+delete.I have not accepted it yet as i have not got a clue what it is,i usually use Real player.

This is what it says:

Manage Licenses

You have aquired a new license for protected content.

It is recommended that you back up your licenses in case your original
licenses are ever damaged.

Do you want to back up your licenses now?


It then gives you a yes or no option. Ive not seen this before so if anyone actually knows what it is i would be greatful for your advice.

Stay happy :thumbsup:
