    I have a really small amountof memory on this old desktop and want to remove as much as possible to free up space for programs I actuallyy need - I see an option to remove windows media player as a windows component in "add/ remove progams". Is it safe for me to do this? I never use it and dont need it - it just fills up my disk with music I keep on my external hard drive - and I have VLC which is more than adequate... Please advise... x

    You're confusing RAM with hard drive space.

    You appear to have 1 GB(1024 MB) of RAM in that computer.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Download and save the

    TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe)

    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.

    Information about your computer will appear.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire text here.

    I wasn't aware that you've started 2 threads on this same computer.

    I've replied to your other thread.

    You cant really delete windows media player entirely. if its deleted it just rolls back to the previous version.
