    Any legal trouble?

    Hey guys..so try and help me out... does the new version of windows media player, that is WMP 10, check out your computers registry and/or report issues such as licensing for software automatically? More specifically running OS registry...mp3's...and other applications?


    While we are on the subject...are there any programs from microsoft that run registries or has anyone you have heard of been caught with illegal copies of software?

    thanks for the help m8's,

    Lexx

    don't use illegal softwareware and this won't be a concern.

    But I don't think MS is allowed to check / report back on things like the registry by law
    It is Inevitable.....
