Windows Media Player 11

Microsoft has released Windows Media Player 11 final gold version on 30th Oct to the public. WMP 11 is available for Windows XP to download and of course to the upcoming Windows Vista. Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 features are built-in support for Urge, which is a subscription music service co-developed with MTV, streamlined and simplified interface, fast access to shortcuts and settings, universal back and forward button, revamped playback controls, faster CD ripping, Reverse Sync from portable device to PC, improved searching, and supports new formats for ripping and playing music, namely Windows Media Audio Professional and WAV Lossless. WMP 11 is designed with a whole new look to the digital entertainment. "When designing Windows Media Player 11, we looked at the needs of a wide range of users—from people who are just getting started with digital media to discriminating audiophiles with very large collections on their PCs. By incorporating this feedback into the design process, we made some significant changes to the Player to deliver a simpler, more visual way to navigate music, video, and other digital media and further improve the overall experience."
For me, WMP 11 looks rocks with the new design and its is one of the main thing which made it a success. Its not only me who says this, this new design has won praise from many reviewers.
Click here to learn more, click here for readme and here are some screenshots (sc1, sc2).

WMP 11 can be downloaded from the Windows Media Home or Windows Media Player 11 page which directs to the Windows Media Player download page without WGA validation. WMP 11 can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Download page, but from there, WGA validation is required to download. However, WGA validation is required when installing. So Windows which are not Genuine need s crack/hack to install WMP 11. I've posted a entry for bypassing WGA and also here is an article which may help you with this. Enjoy ;)

Btw, Mircosoft has announced that Windows Vista will be broadly available as a stand-alone product or pre-installed on new PCs on January 30, 2007 and Windows Vista was released to manufacturing (RTM) on 8th Nov.

Bypassing Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA)

There are couple of methods to crack and disable WGA validation tool, WGA notifications and download & install Microsoft products by bypassing Genuine Windows, but now lots of bypassing methods no longer works. So this article contains the popular and easiest working methods on bypassing and so you can wont get any annoying WGA notifications and you will pass from the WGA validation tool and of course then you can download the Microsoft products such as Windows Defender, Internet Explorer 7, Windows Media Player 11, DirectX etc.

Steps to bypass Windows:

*Note: This method most likely works on Windows XP SP2 (Service Pack 2) only. If you still haven’t upgrade to SP2, you can download Windows XP Service Pack 2 that no need any validation to download and install via direct download link.

1. Download & extract WindowsLicense.rar / wpa_registry.rar whichare archive files and contains the same registration file (.reg).
2. Double-click on the file in the registry entry file (.reg) in the archive, and answer as 'Yes' when asked whether want to add the information to the registry to hack the registry.
3. The Windows is now licensed, legal, Genuine activated and you should be able to pass all validation. You test it by using the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool or validate from Genuine Microsoft Windows online. Of course, until the next Mircosoft update ;)

If you cant download the files above and if you want to see the actual registry keys and branches which was entered to the Windows Registry click here.

*Note: Some users reported that the hack on the registry trick is erased, reverted or reset once reboot or restart your PC. If so, here is the full updated article with couple of methods of bypassing. Enjoy ;)

Generic Host Process for Win32 Service Error

A few days ago, while i was surfing the web, an error occurred and it disconnected me from the internet. So i restarted my pc and after that i've been getting this annoying error everytime my computer is turned on and connected to internet for about 5 or 12 mins and the error message appears and it disconnects me from the internet, MSN , IRC and browser too and couldnt reconnect again. So i restart my pc everytime i get that error, was too lazy to fix it. hehehe! I got really mad about that problem and i started to work on my other pc with the same connection, not even half an hour, the annoying error popped on that even! So finally i thought of fixing that.

I met few people who got the same annoying error and some people told its a virus or something. So i scaned my pc with NOD32, Ad-aware SE , Spyware Doctor which are update-to-date, but it didnt detect any virus or anything. Some people have formatted their pc, but still the annoying error appears. I was so desperated and finally one of my friend came with a solution for this and since there are many people who got this old annoying error and also it keeps increasing day by day. So i've decided to post about this so people who got this problem can fix it without getting mad ;)
All you got to do is, close the so called port 135 & 445

To close it, do the following steps:
  1. Open Registry Editor by going to Start>Run and in the box type: regedit.exe and press OK.
  2. Now, from the Registry Editor, go to Edit>Find or Ctrl+F and write "TransportBindName" in the box without the quotation mark. It may take few mins to search. This value can be found in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\NetBT\Parameters
  3. Double-click on that value and delete the default value in the box and press OK.
  4. Find the value "EnableDCOM" which can be found in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Ole
  5. Double-click on that value and set the value in the box as 'N' which currently maybe set as 'Y'.
  6. Close the Registry Editor and restart your pc.

You can also download Windows Worms Doors Cleaner (WWDC) and close 135, 445 and NetBIOS (if necessary) or all the ports, but by disabling only 135 & 445 my pc seems to be normal without formatting my pc. One of my friend told this problem can be fixed by a patch from Microsoft and by using a registry cleaner and also he told this problem can be created by a virus called w32/sbotworm which attacks those ports. That virus is detectable from McAfee and the virus maybe still trying to get around the fix and again create that same old annoying error. So you need to update windows and virus definitions.

So anyways i hope you can get out of this annoying thingy. Good luck and thankx for slees and vixhal for this great solution. Cheers ;)
