How to Uninstall Windows Media Player 11

Usually most of the software you install has an uninstall option in the program menu from where you can easily uninstall the software, but with some softwares like Windows Media Player 11 and Internet Explorer 7 it is not the case.

Recently one of my readers asked me how to uninstall the Windows Media Player 11, which in itself is not a straight forward task as it is does not have an uninstall option present unlike most of the other softwares.

Performing the steps listed below you can remove any Windows Software updates that have been installed on your computer, including Internet Explorer 7 and any other updates.


Its a quite simple process and do this you will have to open the Add / remove program option from Control Panel.

Once you are in the Add / Remove Program section you will see a list of programs that have been installed on your computer.

In the top section of the Add / Remove program section you will see a small check box saying Show updates click on that as shown in the screen shot below.

Once you have clicked on that scroll down till you see Windows XP – Software Updates.

Under that remove anything that is related to the Windows media player 11 and you will have successfully uninstalled Windows Media Player 11.

You will also find the Internet Explorer Beta 7 and various other updates installed by Windows Update and uninstall it using the same steps.
