    I'm really enjoying WMP11, but I'd really like the ability to disable
    Music stores. This is a neccessary feature, not only for parental control,
    but maybe some of us just want to disable the online stores. Even iTunes, the
    ultimate music store monopoly, has an option to completley disable all music
    store references. With WMP11 including more music store integration, it is
    neccessary to give us an option to disable this. I don't want my kids, who
    use my computer, able to buy songs online or things like that with my URGE

    Also, the music store feature can also be annoying where WMP11 gives you the
    option "Buy" for every song that's playing - you just assume I haven't bought
    it. If its on my computer and I'm playing it, shouldn't you assume I'm NOT a
    criminal? I really don't like how the thing on the left gives you the option
    to "buy" any song you've already bought - isn't that a place for more useful
    information, like album info? By putting all these "buy" references
    everywhere, you're assuming I haven't bought the music, and that I'm a
    criminal. I really don't like it.

    Yes, I think this would be a valuble feature, just a tick box in the options
    just to make the online stores button disappear off the UI. and the odd buy
    buttons that are around the place. To be honest i dont see why i would want
    to buy a track i've already bought anyway, call me crazy.
