    Hello!
    I have recently installed a new webcam, and to use this on Skype I had to update my 'drivers'. So I think I did this :confused: and now my webcam is working...BUT here is the problem:
    I have burnt CD's onto my Media Player and it has always played them back fine...NOW when I go to play my music it says that I have to be connected to the internet..??? I've never had to be connected before to listen to my music so i'm very confused as to why it's saying that now!!!??
    Can you help please?
    Below is my 'systeminfo' I believe.
    Hope to hear from you soon!
    Regards, Sarah

    Open the Windows Media Player. Click Tools > Options... > Privacy.

    You might need to uncheck boxes in there:
