    I still use WMP6.4 and it works fine on sites like www.mp3.com for streaming music, its light and loads fast..

    Some online sites bug you with a popup to try to get you to 'upgrade' to the nasty WMP9 but thats their problem. Don't do it!

    WMP7 has the eye candy but doesn't load as quick as v6.4.

    WMP8 is like 7 but more bloated.

    WMP9 has the evil Digital Rights Management (DRM) spyware/software and once you install it you cannot remove it without a reformat.

    The lesson is to do a backup before you install *anything* new from MS.

    This topic intrigued me, I found this solution on the Tech Guy Forum, for what it's worth here is AZSR's solution:

    Media player 9, dont do it, you dont need or want this software. This program integrates itself with windows XP, it becomes a system componet and officialy can not be removed. According to microsoft, it will cause windows to not run correctly with out it once installed.. Media player 7.1 will do everything you need,Ok, this thing is the biggest spyware on the planet, you better have a legal version of windows to run this, it is constantly trying to access the internet, luckily zone alarm lets me know and I just say no. It will report to microsoft anything and everything on your system, here is the fix,, :

    MANUAL UNISTALL OF MEDIA PLAYER 9
    1-- uninstall MP9 or MP7 (if is Present) from Add/Remove Programs and reboot
    2--Search and delete the following files:
    C:\windows\wmplibrary_v_0_12
    C:\windows\system\wmplenc.dll
    C:\windows\system\wmpui.dll
    C:\windows\system\wmp.ocx
    C:\windows\system\wmploc.dll
    C:\windows\system\wmpcore.dll
    C:\windows\system\wmpcd.dll
    C:\windows\system\wmpscheme.xml
    C:\win\inf\wmp.inf
    C:\windows\help\wmplayer.chm
    C:\program files\windows media player\wmplayer.exe
    3--search for and rename Mpauth.dat ( if is Present) on this Case the file was
    Missing.
    4--delete the following registry keys:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows&#09 2;CurrentVersion\Uninstall\WMP9 (on this Case this
    entry was missing).
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed
    Components\{6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6}
    5- enable file extensions
    See SOX000608700092 How to show file extensions for WIN9X
    6--go to the following web site <http://www.geocities.com/eenfo/mp9.htm> or just
    copy and paste in to a word document the following:

    7--copy the commands to a notepad and save the file with BAT extension
    8-- run the file and reinstall MP7
    9-- reboot and download Media Player 7.1
    10--reboot to safe mode and install it there

    Please, if your a novice, be very careful, make a restore point ,back up the registry prior to attempting this.
    Good Luck&#33;&#33;

    Just passing on some info that I found.

    I just found this website and I love it but more about that elsewhere on the forum. Want my personal advice. Go back to version 6.4 and add codec packs and updates. It&#39;s not the most stable version but it is the last version before Microsoft started its policy of "We dicide what you have to do and like". Mediaplayer 6.4 uses a normal window caption without all the space consuming bla bla etc. I think mediaplayer is a great example of newer is not better. Wanna know what I think of the Microsoft policy: :angry:

    Bob,
    I made note of your instructions for future reference, but have a question about the final list of files to be removed. I&#39;m not sure if you are indicating, for instance the last one, "ren c:&#092;windows&#092;inf&#092;wmp.inf *.fni" or did you mean to use the dos command "rem" with the file name? (I better ask this question now when I&#39;m calm, rather than later when I may be frustratedly trying to remove the files.)

    Thanks for all the info.

    Below is the link for Media Player Classic. I think it&#39;s pretty nice because it&#39;s not bloated, but it has more features than the original 6.4 version.

    I think Media Player 8 comes bundled with XP, so I don&#39;t know if works with other versions of Windows.

    I&#39;ve heard of some people installing Media Player 9, only to want to go back to version 8.

    You can try the download from the following location:

    http://66.111.69.58/downloads/mp8_eng.zip

    I don&#39;t use it, so I&#39;m not sure how well it works.

    Hope this helps.
