1. http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html#wmp9rollback writes how to rollback or uninstall.
2. Since WMP is a tad HUGE, I use Windows Media Player Classic for most video playback. It's at http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli/
Sorry, I have no cures for WMP, only replacements.
Has microsoft done anything to correct the WMP problem with the upgrade to 9? I am really disgusted that I cannot uninstall it, watch any movies or do anything with it other that what I understand is to "reformat" my hard drive. Please any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Cookie
