After installing the latest version of Windows Media Player (10), a Spybot scan alerted me to a change in the registry that is concerned with Client ID. This might be a monitor of the use that Media Player 10 gets which Microsoft might want to know about: or I suppose it might be a "bug" that has infiltrated the download process. I'm not sure whether to leave it alone and see what happens or to let Spybot get rid of it. Any advice please ?
I've checked in Player/Tools/Options/Security Tab and none of the boxes are ticked - but I can't find one that is described as the Usage Data : I've looked at the entry in the registry that Spybot is "worried" about- and it's at HKEY CurrentUser(Long ID number) Software/Microsoft/MediaPlayer/Player/Settings/ Client ID= Nuot sure if I should let Spybot delete it. A scan using Lavasoft Ad-aware detects nothing to report.
