PS3 and Windows Media Player 11 Streaming

I was having issues where my PS3 was not seeing my Desktop Media stores. I had turned sharing on but was still not able to see it. It saw my laptop just fine so I knew the problem was w/ my desktop. I started scouring the web looking for ways to fix it, needless to say, I came up empty handed. I started looking through my system log and found that my "Windows Media Network Sharing Service" was not creating the share because my DRM was corrupt. Since I did not have any DRM media I was not concerned on losing it so I started searching on how to fix it. Here is what I came across. Hope this helps some of you out there. (I tried posting this to the playstation forums, but either the site was having issues or my computer was)
Just follow the procedures listed on this site:

If you were like me and don't have any DRM protected stuff (Windows XP SP2), just do this:
  1. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users
  2. Go to Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Select "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)".
  3. In C:\Documents and Settings\All Users you should see a folder named "DRM"
  4. Rename DRM to DRMBackup or delete if if you don't care.
  5. Then visit this website: http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/Indivsite/en/indivit.asp
  6. The site above will repair your DRM instance, then unshare and share your media.
