This post is not a complaint though, because this same short-circuit is responsible for keeping most of the IT personel around the world employed.
I concur!

Although you need to come to South Africa for a bit. PC Retailers and repair shops alike have developed a sort-of sixth-sense that detects when a noob walks into their stores.

It's become so bad, that when someone like myself comes alongs and gives it to them (the customers) honestly, they think I'm the one trying to rip them off...!
That's happened to me before. When you point out how badly they've effed up their system they immediately assume you're just saying that to charge extra, while all you're trying to do is to do it the right way, fix their system once and for all and save them the hassle of coming back.

It's a really stressful job being an IT technician. You have to wait, and wait, and wait...there's not much else you can do. You're either scanning to get rid of viruses, installing an OS, formatting, copying, defragging...all of which take forever. And the customers start to lose patience and get mad at you.

As for my issue with WMP12. I didn't like the interface at all, the taskbar thing was gone and my "Enhancements" would each open in a different window. A very messy and stupid design. So I tried installing WMP11. I got it to work but it wasn't working properly. Double clicking files didn't work. I decided I want WMP12 back, and since then I've been trying every possible solution to get WMP12 to work again. I already am following this issue on another thread. Like I said, the big problem is version conflicts. Otherwise I'd have re-installed whatever I needed and be done with it by now.
Since WMP 12 is built into the os there is one sure way to get it back, Clean Install, the other way that may work is repair install

I tried that man, didn't work. Reason being that I installed Windows then I installed some updates. So my DVD is an older version of my current Windows. A repair install is impossible. And I really don't feel like doing a clean install....screw that..

PS. Legit name/sig. Got a Z28 myself.
