    I am trying to set up sharing to my PS3 and the registry key described as such
    [http://www.microsoft.com/windows/wi...id=C00D0FF4&contextid=233&originalid=C00D0FF4]

    Confirm that you have ownership of the Windows Media Player Network Sharing
    Services registry subkey.

    To confirm ownership of the registry subkey

    Click Start.

    Type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

    Navigate to the
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences\HME\[security
    ID] subkey. The name text of the security ID folder is long, composed of
    alphanumeric characters broken up with dashes.

    Right-click the [security ID] folder, and then click Permissions.

    Confirm your user account is listed as an owner of this subkey on the
    Security tab. If your account name is not listed, click Add and add it to the
    list of owners. You will need to be logged on as an administrator or a member
    of the Administrator's group to perform this step.

    Is missing from my machine. Now, I was going to create it, but have no idea
    what the Security ID would be, and no idea how to find it. I'm running
    11.0.6002.18111 on Vista 64bit.
