Windows 7: Program to make the PC A jukebox?

Program to make the PC A jukebox?

Hey all!

Does anyone have a program they know of to make the computer act like a juke box? We have a computer in our basement and when we throw parties right now we just use iTunes. I would like something that would take up the whole screen so friends of friends of friends cant snoop around the computer.

I assume you are just loading a playlist or the whole library and letting it play randomly. If so easiest solution would be to just put a password on the account being used and set a screen saver (or just leave it blank), and lock the account (Windows key+L) and leave the music playing.

I want people at the party to be able to choose music so a lock or screen saver wont work

This is how I'm doing it, although this tip is for WMC:

1. Open Start Menu > Run
2. Type c:\windows\ehome\ehshell.exe /directmedia:music /noshutdownui /mediamode
3. Hit Enter
4. Disconnect keyboard & mouse

This opens WMC in full screen modus directly in Music Library, disables shutdown and minimize buttons and removes shutdown option from WMC menu. Use remote to control WMC.

do you want this program to make changes message
Is it possible to set the security level for certain programs, the "do you want this program to make changes to your computer" message is annoying to have to click on everytime I open a program. Is this how it's supposed to be, or am I missing something here? thanks
