I'm using Secunia psi2 ----Secunia is reporting zombie files with windows media player 11 and windows media player 64 bit....My system is Vista 64 bit...1 shows 15 zombies and the other 1 shows 14 zombies.... I have tried to remove/delete the zombies and it won't allow this????? I have tried to remove windows media player and it won't allow this either.. From what I have found searching win media player cannot be removed in Vista without breaking Vista ???? Is this true ??? Is there a way to remove the Zombies???? Are there any remedies you can suggest to solve this.... The zombies do state a very limited threat risk... I have removed other programs Zombie files without any problems... Thanks

I don't use Vista and never have...so I can't really respond to what might be Vista issues :).

But...any version WMP which is installed with the O/S as native...cannot be removed/uninstalled. However...any subsequent version of WMP can be uninstalled. Since it appears that Vista came with WMP 11 and WMP only applies to Windows 7...
