    Man...this SUX! I want to listen to a CD while working today, but it's trying install this program on my company PC. I do have Administrative access via Win2000, but I don't want to "hose" the company PC. Also, will I still be able to play the CD on my PC at home? Any feedback?

    Just convert the songs on the CD to MP3s, and sidestep the mystery software install on the company PC.

    My thoughts exactly, you could do that at home then bring the mp3's on a different disc and move them to your work pc, and you prolly already have some kind of media player on the work pc that will work for you.

    Chances are that you can prevent the installation of the software by keeping the shift key pressed while you insert the CD and play it normally afterwards.

    I would not install anything from any music CD, period.
