Subject: RE: Tech: how to turn off an 'automatic' tune
It takes very little time to set Firefox up. I did it on the old Windows machine I have at work (Windows 2000 Pro, which is a version most people have never heard of), and it worked first time with no glitches at all, despite me knowing essentially nothing about Windows administration. Just google your way to the Firefox download site, look up the right version for your machine, download it and click on it. That's all it will take. MIDIs and MP3s play inside Firefox itself, you don't need anything external.
Real Audio is more of a pain, you need to download an external player for that (and there isn't one for my Mac except atrocities crippled by nagging to buy something). Seems you aren't using it anyway.
I didn't know Microsoft had any music-related products. Nobody I know uses them and I've never seen one.
