I installed WMP 9 and it is making troubles with my divx files, how do i uninstall it ?
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 -
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 .
can i dowload wmp 8 and overwrite 9 ?
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 Crogram 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
system restore is off in my computer
Too bad :
1. Delete files from C:/Program Files/..
2. use Regclean to erase invalid registry keys ..
3. Install WMP8
ok thanks !
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
