It brought a smile to my face to see this one tonight.
"Snow White" DVD may be glitchy with XP - http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1005-200-7648523.html
Disney and Microsoft have been longtime business partners. The two corporate giants worked together on the release of Disney's Web-based product called "Disney's Daily Blast."
So we can now tie it all together.
Microsoft Blocks at MSN.com if you run a non-MS browser ---> They still blocked you if you used a Mac at Disneyblast.com---> Disney uses Interactual ----> Interactual blocks Macs and Non MS Browsers
(It ain't logical path, but there's some sort of connection)

Because it likely installed the "Interactual Marketing Machine Browser Plug-in" when it installed the other unnecessary software.
Here's what you get normally:
3. Microsoft Internet Explorer 5+ running on a PC with Windows 95 or higher.
4. JavaScript enabled in your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser.

5. Session and persisent cookies enabled in your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser.

How does Interactual fit into this mess? Do they provide the DVD player code for WinXP? Or is it part of the software that Snow White uses for it's menu magic? Or are they just people being quoted for the article?

They make the crappy software that loads when you insert a "PC-Unfriendly" disc, such as Snow White, Matrix, Goofy, SW:TMP, etc. I think the issue is with the Win ISO driver, but any bad press interactual gets is good in my book.
