OK. One more Windows 7 problems. I no like Windows media player. I found way and gotted rid of it from menu right click.

It gone for while but now it back with about 3 entries in menu and I is mad!

Did they sneek it in updates? I never ask for none of this! If it in update is anyone knowing which one? I uninstall if anyone is knowings!

What I try to say is that Windows may revert thing if they think that the user have performed changes against default settings.

But the inner working of Windows I don't know, so the excact reason why WMP get back to the menu remains unknown.

What i DO know from the time I used to thinker around in W7 registry is that there is several places in registry where menu options are stored. If you delete one, then there is a backup - and most probably, many of those get reverted on Windows update.

Windows Media Player is likely a piece of Windows that cannot be permanently removed. If an update finds it's missing, Windows will replace it.

If you don't like it, don't use it. You can change your default media player to whatever you choose it to be.
