    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
