Use this trick to uninstall MSN Messenger, Media Player, MSN Explorer and Microsoft Games. First, make a copy of sysoc.inf (found on the hard disk at \winnt\inf\sysoc.inf) before proceeding so that you can restore the initial configuration if necessary. Give the copy a different name, such as sysoc2.inf. Open the Sysoc.inf file. Each line of text in the file represents a component that can be displayed in the Add/Remove Windows Components dialog. Delete the word HIDE for any component that you want to see in the dialog (do not erase the commas). Save the Sysoc.inf file, then close it, and reboot your computer. The Add/Remove Windows Components dialog will now display the items you want.
Then I found this one but there is a space in the command that the one above doesn't have:
Another tip for Start-Run:
RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\wmp.inf,Uninstall
Then I found this one in my notes specific to WMP10:
Microsoft's latest media software doesn't include a mechanism for uninstalling the software on Windows Millennium Edition (Me) or Windows XP operating system. Typically software makers like Microsoft provide a simple means of uninstalling software--particularly software such as Media Player 9.
The only way to uninstall WMP 9 in WindowsMe and XP is to do a System Restore. Well this worked on Windows Me. Might work in XP. Don't know.
Goto Start - Run and enter the following:
RunDll32 advpack.dll, LaunchINFSection C:\Windows\inf\wmp.inf,Uninstall
I did this in Safe Mode. It rolls media player back to it's original install state. In my case I now have WMP 6.4. (which is the "classic" wmp that is usually included in WMP)
When I did it I did get an error that it couldn't unregister the OCX C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\wmp.dll but it didn't seem to harm anything.
Also when I restarted windows I did get an explorer will now close error, but the next restart was fine.
I think I also remember reading someplace that if you install WMP (over itself) once or twice, it will eventually give you an add/remove entry. A message may come up about overwriting or something like that. Tell it to do it anyway.
To remove Windows Media Player 10 Start> Run> Copy-paste this: C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\Setup_wm.exe /Uninstall

Not to get too far off topic, but this is what I get when following your instructions, & then attempting to play a file:
It can be uninstalled
