1. A firewall stopped it.

2. The CD was one of those newer DRM protected content.

3. There are bugs in WMP 10. You can guess that, but I'll confirm it. Your choice to ask its maker to write bug free software.

And then the internet could have been busy.

Take your pick.

You knew that was coming.

-> You may be under the impression that this software is bug free.

Let me assure you that Microsoft's offerings work for most people, most of the time. Items like you posted are on the outer edges and they seem to ignore it.

What do I do? I use something else if an application doesn't work for me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
