Win& system says Media Player 11 is "the latest version" but....

And I can't see how to activate streaming, because there is NO "Streaming" in the menu bar like there is on my WMP

Windows XP & 7 & 8
We have a single domain environment with Windows 7 64bit clients. Some of our users have to "CLICK INTO THE PASSWORD FIELD" after they hit ctrl-alt-delete when they login.

(The devil's in the details.)
Thanks in advance for any help!

A couple of years ago, I purchased a gateway laptop that came with an i5 processor, a 500gb hard drive and windows 7 home premium.
