Microsoft sales of media player, web browser 'problematic': Chinese regulator

BEIJING (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp's (MSFT.O) sales of its media player and internet browser software in China have been "problematic," a Chinese antitrust regulator said on Tuesday, in response to questions about an ongoing anti-monopoly probe into the technology giant.

Zhang Mao, the head of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, made the remarks at a media briefing in Beijing. He did not give details.
