I recently formatted my win XP and installed WMP 11(Windows Media Player). Now it says that WMP 11 wont work until i validate my windows online and my windows is NOT genuine, means ultimately my WMP wont work.
And when I tried to install WMP 10, it says that a more recent version of WMP is still running so it cant install WMP 10.
I event tried system restore to undo the installation of WMP 11 but XP didnt create any restore points. :)

How to uninstall WMP 11 and install WMP 10?
Plz help.
Thank you.

Is the OS activated and genuine?
If not, I would get it activated. This way you can get updates, and most likely straighten out the WMP issue.
You may have to call MS to do this. During the activation you will be given a number to call if needed.
