    It's not really Microsoft's fault at all. They are just having to comply with this stupid law. Luckily WMP is still allowed by the law to be provided as a separate Media Features Pack download.

    Thanks Shawn and Dave now I have this showing in that Windows Features and I don't know where it is coming from but I have typed it into search and it is there, and I have it pinned to my taskbar as normal in 7.
