I downloaded the plug in from the link of the website mentioned.But the position as shown on the plugins is still the same it says it is venerable.I again tried to check by clicking the link to see if the plug in is up to date but without any success. The plug- in i.e. windows media player dynamic linked library 3.0.2.628. continues to be shown as venerable.

Butterfly:

I downloaded plugin but in message box in Add/Remove Programs it said it belonged to network source that was not available.

I have no idea what that means. I'm not going to worry about it as it seems more of an annoyance rather than anything which affects Media Player which functions OK.

Thanks anyway.
