Relativistic approach to solving a problem?
If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.

It's "hidden" in Components in add/remove. But...all that really does is hide the shortcuts to WMP. There are ways to uninstall WMP, but WMP is also integrated into much of Windows and uninstalling for real could cause problems. You'd be better off just to set your current player as the default for all formats, go into WMP and turn off all the auto updating and settings like that. And then just "forget" it's there.
