*EDIT* Misread the question.
You should be able to install WMP 10 over WMP 11, am I right? I don't have 11, so I don't know. There's a link to ten at the bottom.

If you want to uninstall WMP 11, here's how:
Open up your start menu and go to Control Panel, then to Add/Remove Programs. Wait for it to populate the list, then click Add/Remove Windows Components on the bar on the left hand side of the window.
Wait for the new window to load, then scroll to the bottom and uncheck Windows Media Player 11.
Hit next and follow through with that.

Then, you can go here http://www.microsoft...10/default.aspx to download WMP 10.

Did you reboot after you uninstalled WMP 11? And is there an entry for it in the normal Add/Remove programs list that you can use as well/in addition?

I'll have to help with this, I am friends with todumb4u in real life, He wanted to rid himself of WMP 11 for 10, So I had him delete WMP11 forcibly then clear it from the registry, then try to reinstall WMP 10, Even though he did that, when he trys to install WMP 10 it still says that he has a more recent version installed on his PC.

deleting and deleting registry --- Bad

Got myself in trouble couple of times try to fix the registry to uninstall a program without a step by step guide.

If it does not uninstall, current installation may be corrupt, a good option to try is to reinstall wmp 11 and see if it will uninstall correctly after.

I did have him backup the whole registry beforehand.

You might try using a registry cleaner like the one native in CCleaner instead/in addition to deleting values manually.
