How To Block Media Play From Calling Home

When i started to play a song and saw my modem lites start going..
I found the some registry tweaks to block Media Play from calling home.


Save to a reg (txt) file and import into the registry.

1. Do Not Receive Media Player Licenses.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences]
"SilentAcquisition"=dword:00000000

2. Disable Media Player identification through Internet sites

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences]
"SendUserGUID"=dword:00000000

3. Disable automatic codec downloads

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences]
"UpgradeCodecPrompt"=dword:00000000
