We are running active directory and one Domain.  We are looking for a solution to set a policy for Windows Media Player to be the default media player across the domain -- approx 2000 PC's running both XP and W2K.  We can use GPO editor or other (login script etc.) but can not find a script or policy. Our servers are W2003.
