Back up your music files to be safe. Uninstall the player and re-install it and see if that will cure the double listing. Seems a few quirks show up every once in awhile. Especially if you have downloaded and installed addition skins and plugins.

You can do a search of hard drive to ensure you got all the installed files although Windows has always been sloppy about leaving behind DLLs and other files after using un-install utility. Might even use a registry cleaner (backup registry before using) to get any registry keys left over from WMP 10. Then do a clean re-install. I would not use the same install program if you happened to have save it on your HD, but get a fresh copy.

Use the find function and you'll discover that you have more than one version of WMP in your computer, plus, depending on your system, you may have obsolete versions in the updates section. This is because WMP evolved from earlier versions and keeps them on hand for the parts.

I did a search on WMP, I found wmpfolders in this location:

c:\Documents and Settings\<user ID>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

This one I saw as well that I not sure about:

wa2wmp.PNF

Located in:

C:\Windows\inf

And this one is in a folder twice:

wmpasf.dll

Location: C:\Windows\RegisteredPackages\{DD90D410-1823-43EB-9A16-A2331BF08799}

C:\Windows\RegisteredPackages\{DD90D410-1823-43EB-9A16-A2331BF08799}-$BACKUP$\System

when I did a roll back, I did see version 9. But the question that I now have is why has this problem only started over the weekend?

How can I completely remove windows media player 9 off my computer and only have 10?

I have compelety removed WIndows Messenger ages ago though.

Could Removing something in the registry could have done this? :tazz:
