Player 11 phoning home

A

It seems that Microsoft has decided I *WILL* participate in the "user
experiance" phone home game because the option to uncheck the damn thing is
greyed out. Is this real? If so it's GARBAGE. You want to use my sytem
and my bandwidth get the checkbook out!

As an FYI: In order to defeat this garbage I changed all media file
associations to other player apps and will NEVER use media player 11 until
this is changed and I fully intend to tell every person I know to do the
same.

Get back to me after RTM and if it's still that way I'll be right beside
you, torch and/or pitchfork in hand (well, maybe a few feet behind you).

Until then, if you want you want to use BETA software, participate in the
feedback.

Go to Tools > Options > Privacy (tab), under "Customer Experience
Improvement Program", uncheck "I want to help make Microsoft software and
services even better by sending Player usage data to Microsoft".

In the case of a beta though, I would keep it on personally.
