  2. I've been raving and ranting about this for over a year, you should've paid
    attention. This is one of the reasons why I do *not* allow Microsoft updates to
    run on our network, because they have PAYLOAD from time to time. MSUpdate is
    one big backdoor and I don't like to be rogered from behind at ANY time.

    Use MediaPlayer 2 and/or VLC(VideoLAN) to watch those files, that's what I use.
    Less chrome, and equal or better performance. And avoid the .wma .wmv formats
    whereever you can. If Gates and Co want to be stupid about this, they can, but
    I for one won't be keeping them company.
