    You want to remove Windows Media Player?
    You can not remove it from add/remove programs?
    Have you tried to search the HDD and remove it that way?
    We can remove it from Registry.
    What other Media Players are installed?

    Hmmm....I wonder if that file is a porn movie LOL

    yea, I have the same problem. I can't delete my pictures or other jpeg files and it always says 'the program is in use and cannot be deleted' But cleary. I wasn't using the particular jpeg files when I was trying to delete it.
