|I'm running windows XP home service pack 3 32 bit OS|
I want to get rid of ( or disable) windows media player 9 b'cuz I don't like microsoft .
Please refer to the info below to see my attempt to kill media player
1) I tried to delete all files from this folder as suggested by microsoft.
They simple rewrite themselves
2) So I entitled each file with a new name as suggested by microsoft.

Obviously I've been unsuccessful. Any help will be appreciated
