In A Relationship

I normally don't post here due to the fact that I have my own site at amazinzay.com but I am ticked off enough to post here to.

I am thoroughly ticked off at Microsoft right now. I will never
use Windows media player to rip a CD again. I was looking through some
of the music I had on an old hard drive I put into this computer and
tried to play some of the music, no problem rightâ€¦. wrong. I clicked
play and I got this error:
The file you are trying to play was ripped (copied) from an audio CD.
During the ripping process, the file was "protected." This limits the number of computers on which the file can be played.
To play the file on this computer, you
must download a license (a process known as "license migration"). A
license acts an electronic key that allows you to "unlock" a
protected file and play it.
To download a license for this file, click Download License.
I am really ticked off, so I tried clicking the Download
Licence link, it then informed me that I have to be using IE to get it.
I found out later that there is an option to make it not protect files
as it rips them in Windows Media Player, but I have never taken the
time to learn the intricacy's of WMP. I am not a happy camper.
