While just browsing my PCs Control Panel I opened up the Administrative Tools>Component Services and navigated to the DCOM Config Folder. While there I noticed there was an entry for KM Player. I installed this player a few weeks back to check it out but decided to stick with VLC player. In the process of uninstalling the KM Player I found that it was not listed in my ARP list. I found that in the KM Player folder in my Program Files there was an uninstall icon and I used it to uninstall the program. Even though it seemed to successfully uninstall it left all my video files with KM Player icons and is still set as the default player when I download video files online. I found a solution to the changed video icons here yesterday but not the default setting on download. I would like to get rid of this entry in the above mentioned folder but cannot find an option on it. When I right click on it and open properties there are several different settings of which the only one I felt confident in altering was in the general settings box I altered its permissions from default to none, but there isn't a delete option. Can anyone help me with this annoyance?.

Hi Garmanma,
I had already deleted all the entries mentioned in your links. As I tried to explain above after I did this I still get KM Player appearing as the default player in the box that appears when you click on a download link. Now I can click on save and download to my Downloads Folder as I have always done but cannot see any way to alter the default setting to WMP or VLC. Then today while following the file path mentioned I saw the KM Player entry but without any obvious way to delete it. Not knowing enough about this I came here and posted.
