✔ Best Answer
You know Windows Vista comes with Windows Media Player 11, right? It should have everything you need.

Yeah, Windows Media Player should work fine for you then.

There probably is something 'better' out there (by which I assume you mean easier to use) but considering WMP comes preinstalled and preconfigured, it's probably the simplest solution.

No, no, no. If it's just mp3's and cd's you listen to then you want something simple like winamp. I don't think it's around anymore but you can download the older versions. I still use version 2.64. I imagine it's at least 10 years old.

Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide.

FYI, it's also available as a portable app (in case you want to carry it and some .mp3's around with you on a flash drive):

Hi guys, again a wee bit help, do any of you guys have a safe driver updater. Have you had any experience with DriverUpdate.ink or any suggestions?
Thanks for any help,

Best thing is to get driver updates from the OEM; you avoid having to register you e-mail with some questionable sites (thus avoiding spam) and many "generic-driver" sites may even supply the wrong driver or even worse:

Thanks for that T-R-A, that was the reason for my question. I have been there and got into all sorts of problems downloading "as you say" questionable sites overloaded with spam so bad that it infected my Internet explorer so bad it could not be used.
I am happy to say that I got so much help from "johnw" that my pc is running like new.
T-R-A again thanks for your help.
