Hi.Any way of getting rid of Windows media player completely.I have got rid of most of it.But I keep getting Microsoft updates for it.I can find one empty folder for it but it will not let me delete it.Any advice welcome.
I have to say I sympathize with buteman as I have been considering getting rid of WMP for a long time. I used to work OK until I added a sub-woofer system from which point I started to get high end distortion playing mp3 files. I posted a query on the forum which produced no solutions and no amount of tinkering with drivers/codecs etc. has cured it. The punch line is that using my preferred media players:MediaMonkey/Winamp/Soundbase...I get absolutely perfect sound reproduction..... so OK I have caused the distortion by adding the sub-woofer but as it only affects WMP I never use it.
Never liked it never used it.And don't use automatic updates.Now that they are obliged not to include WMP on Windows in Europe maybe its time for them to include a removal tool for it.Just thought that removing it completely would get rid of the updates.But still getting updates for WMP 9-10-11 even though I have deleted them.I can remove the updates so no big deal.Just thought that maybe I could stop them arriving in the first place.
Hi.No I download manually and tick don't show this update again.I don't have iTunes.I have been reading about some of their updates.Just a bit annoying there is only one empty WMP folder.I have gone into Safe Mode deleted it opened recycle bin and deleted it from there.But as soon as I connect to the Internet it comes back.Just a bit of a nuisance.
