Mac Osx And Windows Media Player 9

Not open for further replies.


How do I uninstall Windows Media Player 9 from my Mac OSX?

I've read that other application may fail over time if WMP files are removed... which I have already done. What to do next?

Most of the problems stem from a shared font the WMP 9 shared with Office. So clearing the font cache is a big help. You do this by doing a Safe boot in OS X. Then going back into your regular account. Then there is always the trusted Disk Utility "Repair Permissions" should always be used. This will help OS X out as part of the preventative maintenance routine.
The following are the directions Bob provided that appears to have solved my problem:

Make sure the files you want to trash are on your Desktop.

Then use the Terminal command, type;

cd ~/.Trash
hit return

Then type;

sudo rm -rf

put a space after the f and drag the item you want deleted to the terminal so that its path is automatically entered, then press return

give it your admin password and hit return

Thanks again Bob.
