hello, :tazz:

i want to get rid of all the movies the internet has added to the cpu when i watched them, so how exactly do i do that?
:)
i already tried doing the automatic thing that looks for those videos in Windows media player, and it found like 400, but it never gave an option on how to delete them.
So please help me
Thank - You

The search option you are using is different to the library contents, when you open Media Player, across the top is Library, click this, delete the contents.

Alternatively, make sure system restore is on, remove Media Player, reboot, re-install it

plus,
will the system repair re-install
and that will get rid of all the added movies by the user (me)
right?

ps:

it says that it can't start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.?

Click start then control panel then add / remove, is that how you get there

You should delete them from the library in media player

In future, download the files to a folder and make the folder private

that works but be carefull as not everything is stuff you need to delete, there are tutorials and stuff like that come up from other programs. :tazz:
