The safe way is to use system restore to roll back to a previous time before wmp 9 was installed (for your system, windows ME)

you could always manually remove it, or at least some functionality---what are you trying to do here? You want to remove it and...what? Go back to wmp 8, 7, 6...or something else?

If it is opening when you don't want it to, you can change the associations. Manually removing software like wmp is a pain and can cause more problems than it's worth,
