    I downloaded MP10, but during the installation process I got an error message
    which merely said there was a problem installing it and it might not work
    properly. I can run MP, but any time it goes to the Net for a music file it
    not only fails, but my Internet connectivity fails too. The only way to get
    it back is to reboot router and computer. Even more peculiar - I now get the
    same result when I use Realplayer instead, and that goes to the Net for music
    files. I was able to play an audio file from a BBC site, but immediately
    after it my Internet connection was again disabled.

    I see the following issue on the MS support site: "You can configure
    Microsoft Windows Media Player to automatically detect proxy settings.
    However, the Web Proxy Auto Discovery (WPAD) file may not be automatically
    downloaded as expected for the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and for
    the Microsoft Multimedia Streaming (MMS) protocol." There is a fix but with
    warnings to only use it if you have this particular problem. Not sure if I
    do. Assistance would be appreciated.
