Look to the left for the Windows Setup Add/remove. Then when you're in, look for Windows Media Player. Unselect it and choose ok to remove it.


This brought the question to mind. I see: Description: Adds or removes access to __________________ from the start menu. Since I don't use Windows Messenger or Outlook Express, to name a couple, I have wondered about the overall effect of this feature. I always figured I'd foul things up if I pursued removing Windows components from more than just the startup menu, but I've considered it. (I just haven't pursued the right unbiased KB, I guess)
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

you can remove them if you want! If you dont use MSN either you can remove it! It will say some programs wont work but they just dont want you to remove it! But go ahead it will leave more space and all! Wont bother anything if you just want to remove stuff from your start bar right click on start click properties and then go to customize and press clear list!
