2.4 How do I remove Windows Media Player from my computer entirely?
Windows Media Player is a feature of the operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, depending upon which version of the Player and Windows you are using, you might be able to revert to an earlier version of the Player or remove access to the Player.

If you are running Windows Media Player 9 Series or later, you can revert to an earlier version of the Player. For more information, see question 2.3.

If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000 SP3, or Windows 2000 SP4, you can remove access to Windows Media Player by using the Set Program and Access Defaults feature. Note that this only removes links to the Player. It does not remove the Windows Media Player software. To remove access to Windows Media Player, do the following:

1.
In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
2.
Click the Set Program and Access Defaults button, and then choose a configuration (such as "Non-Microsoft" or "Custom").​
