    After installing Windows Media Player 9 on a computer with 98SE OS I discovered I could not play all my music, so I removed it I thought. I then installed WMP 7, which I have on another computer & does good.
    WMP 7 now has all the traits that I don't like in WMP 9, & I can't seem to get rid of them, no matter haw many times I unistall & reinstall WMP 7, in addition I have now lost visualizations in WMP 7. I suspect a registry problem, but don't know how to fix it.
    HELP!!! THANKS!!! PoundKatt

    Read this detailed FAQ for Win Media Player :

    http://www.nwlink.com/~zachd/pss/pss.html#assoc

    Did you try going through My Comp > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs ? Do this and select WMP9 in the list and there should be an option appear to 'rollback' to the original WMP (6.4.) Once done try reinstalling a later version.

    Try going into WMP9 under options\formats and unchecking everything. Then go into WMP7.1 and check everything under formats. Also go to MS and download all the codecs. I went back to 6.4 and have no problems playing almost anything.
