    Problem: After installing WMP11, all videos are now too dark, colors are
    all fucked up, and adjusting video controls does no good.

    Solution: Turn off overlays

    How?: Open Windows Media Player, right click on the title bar, select
    Tools, Options, Performance, Advanced, and under Video Acceleration, uncheck
    the "Use overlays" box.

    I have the latest computer system with Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Nvidia
    GeForce 7950GT video card, Windows XPsp2, latest DirectX drivers, latest
    Nvidia drivers, Viewsonic VX922 LCD flatpanel monitor with latest drivers.

    I was using WMP10 and everything was fine. After installing WMP11, all
    videos were FUCKED UP and it took me MANY HOURS to figure this shit out!
    Microsoft website was no help at all.

    By the way, make sure you hit the APPLY button before backing out of the
    menus or it won't work.
