    You can't!!!!!
    It's always a good idea to set restore points before installing any Beta software - I found heaps of bugs with WMP9 too.
    Try checking to see if there was a Restore point created before you installed WMP9:
    Start - Run -
    %SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe

    Otherwise you will have to re-install Windows - you can try running the repair by booting into the CD but u may have to do a re-install :(

    Service Pack 1 for XP will enable option to unninstall WMP8 . For MP9 restore it's a good ideea .

    I have read about this problem here before - and other people tried to install WMP8 over the top but it did not work. I sujest deleting the "Windows Media Player" folder from C:program Files and then rebooting to the XP CD and trying the "restore" option - this may pick up a propblem with WMP and restore it - but not sure.

    I don't recommend that . Try first restore and then install 8.0

    Too bad :
    Solution :

    1. Delete files from C:/Program Files/..
    2. use Regclean to erase invalid registry keys ..
    3. Install WMP8

    Well this worked for me and it works great now. Reinstall MP9 and do a full install not an upgrade.

    that's what you get when you try to install beta software..lol

    when WMP9 is Gold, Microsoft will let you know...be patient :)
