    I just tried the free online antispyware scanner on the zone alarm site (http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/promotions/spywaredetector/index3.html) ; and it found "MS Media Player ID".

    The scanner suggests deleting the following registry key:

    HKEY_USERS\.default\software\microsoft\mediaplayer\player\settings|client id

    Is this safe to do? Will media player functionality be affected?

    Thanks.

    yes it is. i scan every now and then with bazooka anti spyware scanner. when i first installed it, it caught the same reg key. it is harmless to delete. read this
    when it comes to media player, i also use WMP Scripting Fix program for security purposes.
