My install log did have a message about wmpns.dll and jar that my jre
had a newer version--see below. It actually seems to be the same
version.

When I go to the MS site to upgrade the DRM.
http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/Indivsite/en/indivit.asp?force=1 in
IE my machine exhibits what appears to be the same lockup. Firefox
doesn't do that, but the upgrade button is not active.

Some notes caught my eye about DRM. I did update my bios to the latest
for my machine last fall before I began my WMP uprade to 10 problems.
I also turned off hyperthreading last fall and then turned it back on
when I was trying to track down some instability.

Does any of this leap out at you and cause you to want to head smack me?
