I updated my Dell Laptop with Windows Media Player 9.0, by the way I have Windows XP, and now it runs reeeeeeaaaallllllyyy slow. I need to know how to uninstall it and and reinstall the version my laptop came with (8.0 i think). I scanned for viruses and adware and also cleaned out temporary internet files and cookies. I also have plenty of memory space so the problem is not lack of memory. If anyone out there can guide me on my quest to a speedy computer again I would be grateful.

Windows Media Player 10 is the current version for XP.

Instead of going backwards, try the latest version.

Interesting topic, as i have a Toshiba notebook and installed the latest version and i had the slowdown problem and our office Tech checked the notebook over and could find no issues and so I had him take it out and install the former version.
i have windows xp, pentium 4 , 512 RAM, 1.9ghz
:thumbsup: Technology...baffles me!!

Now my notebook is fine again.
