    Wmp 11 & album art

    Hi all

    i post my question here, posted in microsoft forum, but the issue not resolved yet...
    WMP 11 & ALBUM ART
    WMP 11
    on my XP PRO SP3 stopped from auto. downloading album arts (for mp3/cda). ALL music files & legal audio CD's were tested on another vista PC with wmp 11 and auto. downloading album arts/names of tracks works fine(so it means album art are present on the online database).
    i've no problem manually downloading album arts. i checked all player definitions again'n'again all are fine. i un/reinstalled WMP, moved back to version 9, rebuild WMP library , did sfc/scan, i do not use system restore and i do not recall any new update/software i installed lately,no virus/malware present,booting in to clean boot did not help also. -but still no good...
    i read this article as well
    Add or Change Album Art
    especially the part-"Why Album Art Is Sometimes Missing"
    and found one intresting line in it-"...administrator has prevented your computer from downloading items such as album art."
    Now- i'm the admin on my PC and my questions are:
    1-how\where exactly can i check if administrator(me) prevented computer from downloading items such as album art ?(may be i did it by mistake ?)
    2-is there another way to fix the issue (except repair installation for windows which i want to avoid)

    AT LAST......here is the solution works fine for me:

    -close wmp
    -go to internet explorer>tools>options>advanced>http1.1 settings>uncheck the 2 boxes below.
    press ok .
    -now insert your CD/media and that's it!
