I am happy enough with WMP 9, but if I don't watch the automatic (but ask before installing) XP upgrades, I will wind up with Windows Media Player 11.  Nine works just fine for me, the later versions have more digital rights in them, and I use other players ordinarily.
There is a patch from microsoft to block the installation of IE7, is the something similar for WMP??
