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.

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

Yes - Reinstall Windows XP SP3 and getting a fresh start with it. Guess its closed conversation then... x Thanks.:(
