    :huh: Can anyone explain how I can INSTALL Windows Media Payer version 9 over Windows MP version 10. When I try to do this I keep getting a message saying that I have a more recent version of MP running and then it just exits. Version 10 has never worked properly on my system since I downloaded it.

    Thanks a million for the replies.

    I downloaded WMP 10 and now cannot remove it to go back to 9. I cannot play an videos from the web - I connect as far as choosing a "trailer" but nothing happens after that.
    How do I delete WMP 10? It is NOT on my Add/Remove programs. I use Windows XP
    ANy help would be appreciated!

    1) Just delete the folder for WMP10 COMPLETELY!!!!!!
    2) Run REG SEEKER and let it clean your registry....(BEST REG CLEANER TO DATE -- 1ST TIME I RAN IT,IT REMOVED OVER 800 KEYS&#33

    3) Re-install WMP9

    I know,WMP10 is garbage........

    Good Luck!!

    Followed your instructions but I cannot delete the folder because it always says something is in use although I close all data....

    Anyway, ran the registry cleaner as you suggested and re-installed 9 BUT it still says there is a newer copy and will not install!

    Now what???? !!!

    Hnnnnnm,can you make sure ALL PROCESS'S for that WMP10 are closed????? (Press CTRL-ALT-DEL and look for any threads running that have to do with WMP10 and 'END TASK' on them all)

    Ot you could try botting up in SAFE MODE (If XP has a safe mode,i dunno.....)

    Theres ways to rid yourself of that garbage MS calls WMP10!!!

    Good Luck

    go to www.ashampoo.com and use the trial version of winoptimer suite, the trial does not let you delete all the unnecessary files on your hard drive but you can look through them and then write down and manually remove the ones relating to windows media player 10 you will be surprised how much this app will find regarding left behind files from old apps and such like. give it a go

    I need an earlier version of Windows Media Player for use on my computer, which uses Windows 95. I am currently using version 6.4, but I need a newer version. I know that version 7.1 is not compatible with Windows 95, but is 7.0 compatible?

    Hi, I just downloaded the Windows Media player 6.4.
    I'm using Windows 95 and the Windows Media player 6. 4 was meant for Windows 95.
    When I went to play a windows media file.
    It says, unable to download an appropriate decompressor in Windows 6.4
    What does that mean?
    The files wont play.
