Default Windows Media Player and Spyware cleaners...

A salesperson at Bestbuy said that Spybot: Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware SE were making it so that I couldnt play Streaming Videos. Was he telling the truth, or did he just want me to buy a Spyware cleaner from them?

Well thats why he works at Bestbuy. Now, in your post you stated that they "were" going to make it... This may be a future project of theirs however, I don't think it will happen.

Uhh... what? I'm saying that, according to them, WMP will get counted as spyware and then it wont work, unless I buy thier brand of spyware sweeper.
