Hi! Couldn't find anything about this in the archives. I just downloaded the latest Windows Media Player and, quite honesyly, I hate it. :thumbsup: I went into Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it, to get back my original WMP, but if I click on Remove, will it remove the entire WMP or just the latest download? I've got about 300 songs on there that I don't want to lose. I'm so upset. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Although I agree with you about the WMP, but don't be too fast to uninstall it.

No# 1. If you hate WMP and don't want to use it or lose your music, just simply don't use it. It won't hurt anything.

No# 2. You will need it at one point or another.. some web pages you may go to may require it, and then you'll go through the whole process again. I don't use WMP either, but I have it, just in case a site needs it to play a video. And yes, I never use it while offline either. Only if a web site requires it.

Also, to remove WMP from your computer, you need to go to the Add/Remove Programs .... and on the left-side, you need to click on the Add/Remove Windows components. That's where you uninstall WMP.
