Agree with Statm1. There's no need to hack registry for things like these.

My MPC crashes during seeking sometimes...This player will take sometime to reach to the likes of VideoLAN and KMPlayer...I have found the KMplayer to be the best one for video playijng..

Re: AIMP - Freeware

I side with all those who say AIMP2 is the best audio player around on Windows. It has some very good innovative features that even winamp lacks...Moreover it doesn't hog as much more as WA does.

Re: TeamViewer - Freeware

Teamviewer is a great application...and I didn't find it lacking anything particularly.. I have been using it to provide remote support online for years...only glitch is that both connecting systems have to have the same version o team viewer installed for it to work.

Re: Adobe makes me sad

Until this post..I had never heard of Adobe Contribute..The company I work in has been into Web designing and development for years...I think firms are going to be sticking with Dreamweaver and trying their hands in something with lesser feature set.

Re: Upgrade to Windows 7???

I guess moving to Windows 7 shouldn't be that tough decision...Win 7 is better than vista and is next generation OS...MS is going to be put all of most of its energy into Seven as opposed to Vista later.
