Media Player Tweaks - Media Player EULA Autoaccept (to prevent first-run on XPSP2)

This restriction hides the Network tab within the Tools -> Options menu of Media Player 8.0 and above.

To change this, follow the next steps:

  1. Open the Registry Editor click on the Start button on your taskbar, then click on Run and type "regedit" and click on OK to start the regedit utility.
  2. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer (see picture 1).

  3. Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "GroupPrivacyAcceptance" and set it according to the value data above.

  4. The modifications you made will be in effect after you reboot your PC.
