From MusicMatches support page:
How to uninstall and reinstall the Musicmatch Windows Media Player plugin for Windows XP

To uninstall and reinstall the Musicmatch Windows Media Player plugin for Windows XP, please do the following:

- Click the Start button on the Windows taskbar.
- Click "Control Panel".
- Click "Add or Remove Programs".
- Select "Musicmatch for Media Player".
- Click the "Change/Remove" button.
- Select "Yes" if you are asked to verify that you want to remove any shared files.
- Reboot your PC.

Do it in safe mode.

You probably have to disable it from starting when Windows loads. If a program is running you can't uninstall it.

Use Startup Inspector to identify it and disable it from starting when you boot your computer:
Startup Inspector (manages startup menu helps you identify aps in the startup menu so you can disable unnecessary programs from running in the background when they are not needed)

And

Startup Monitor (a small freeware ap available on the same page to notify you and require your permission for any program to add itself to your startup menu)

You could always try Uninstall Plus! It is a program that is available on a trial basis HERE. I use it regularly and like it. Not only will it start a specific program's uninstaller, but then it will search the registry for any traces of the deleted program.

Wow! It worked! ITs gone and Im free of MusicMatch. Thanks a lot. I have donated to this site once and I will again now. Im also buying this software; Uninstall Plus. Great for stupids like myself and it also checks your start up items. Thanks again all of you for your help. Take care.

I'm glad it worked out for you. At Bleeping Computer we like to recommend free software, or at least software with a free trial. Too bad there is no free software that works as well as Uninstall Plus. At least none that I am aware of, but the trial period is nice to have, anyway.
