What Operating System is your computer running?

Typically the newer version of Media player comes with Windows live essentials. If you go to start>control panel>uninstall a program you should be able to select Windows live essentials and change it and remove just windows media player from that list. The link below describes how to remove it in Windows XP.

What do you mean loosing your songs by WMP? I have barely used WMP but have not lose any music files even if it is still in Windows. What is the main problem related to your files with WMP?

I echo jhayz. WMP doesn't lose things. Perhaps files have accidentally been transferred to different playlists? Art work is embedded in the file as far as I know so that only disappears with user finger trouble. If you don't intend using it, why delete it? Just use another player.
