    no its called DRM and I keep posting about it to get the word about it out, I think it contributes to all the fakes, person has it, players it with wmp9. rewrites the header, shares it, someone else players it, not the header for that machine, makes it corrupt
    conclusion:

    PLEASE DO NOT GET THE LATEST VERSION OF WMP OR CONTINUE TO USE WMP9
    once you get wmp9, you can't get rid of it PLUS it has DRM

    what the hell is drm you ask

    ohh well I'll just un-install it if its so bad

    you can't, there is no un-install of wmp9

    from the link:
    Windows Me and XP users must rely on a feature called "System Restore" to roll back their Windows installation to a time before they installed Media Player 9 Series if the want to uninstall it. The clunky alternative doesn't really remove all Windows Media Player 9 Series files and could potentially wipe out other system changes


    please don't use this If you have it, and pleases don't get it if you don't
    just use winamp or anything else

    Might I ask what is worse about higher version Winamps?

    They look clunkier, use more resources, are more prone to crashes, and don't really give you much you don't get with 2.x

    They've pretty much abandoned 3 from what I hear, and are instead working on 5 (2+3).
