    You can also use System Restore to roll back to the previous version of the Player. For more information about System Restore, see Use System Restore to Undo Changes if Problems Occur.

    Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely.

    Perhaps this will help:

    When this happens, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to start Task Manager, select the Processes tab and you’ll find the wmplayer.exe process is already running (although it doesn’t appear on the Applications tab). Select it and choose End Process.
