Depends on your OS.

Can you go back to add/remove programs and see if it is listed under the windows components tab?

i have changed wmp before,you dont uninstall the old one first.open wmp, click upgrades then choose, then install on top.not sure what you mean when you say you want the new one but not upgrade.if you choose wmp 9 it will reinstall the lot over your old one

i know what you mean,it is a lot brighter and certainly better looking,i like real player,they have just brought out a new one.there are mixed views on real player some hate it and say it takes over your pc,but i think it is the best.i use it for radio ,viewing media,copying,in fact everything
