    plus
    media player is under windows file protection
    you will have to delete all the files which are in c\programfiles\media player
    in
    C:windows\system32\dllcache
    and then in C:windows\system32\
    before you can delete the the one in program files

    its a microslop conspiracy media player 9 is a nice player. i use it, but if you leave it on your comp, nothing happens. i also use creative media center, it came with my audigy sound card. also , if your having problems with playback, you consider a codec pack like 2.20 kazaa lite codec pack (if thats what is wrong)
