Default Real Player and it's DRMs

Dear mstfyd

RN can write what they want, it's my computer and I am, to the best of my knowledge, in control of it, in other words it does what I want it to do not what someone else says. That's why I have a firewall that tells me when an application is trying to access the internet, and if I don't want that app to access the internet then it won't.

Quite simply, I was advised to get a firewall as soon as I got broadband and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

The internet has changed from a place of adventure and discovery to a war zone full of traps, scammers, ID snatchers and other assorted scumbags.

Anyone that does not have protective software when surfing the internet, i.e. anti virus, anti spyware and a firewall (plus some street smarts) is just like a lamb walking into a den of wolves.

UK Bob
