Windows 7: MCE Netflix player sudden problem

MCE Netflix player sudden problem

I've had Netflix running fine on my MCE now for like a year, actually i've had it running fine on two computers.

Then a month ago, it stopped working on the wife's computer. When you go into it and select a movie to watch, a login box suddenly comes up but it won't allow you to actually interact with the text boxes and type the login info. I thought ok the wife messed something up good and told her to go in via a browser.

But then last night it happened on my Home Theater PC. Same deal, it had been working fine for a year and now.... click Play on a video and it gives me a login box that I can't actually type or even paste into for user/pw.

I tried uninstalling Netflix through add/remove and then re-installed it. The install asks for login info so i thought ok home free. Then i tried to play a video and the damn login box came up again and I can't interact with it.

Anyone had this problem and figured out how to fix it?

I had this or something very much like it. Go to Internet Options/Security/Trusted Sites. Add the and entries and pray. It fixed mine. Somehow this affects MC as well cause I had the same problem with IE and MC.
