windows media player problems

I was recently clearing the registry of spyware, etc and I must have accidentily deleted something to do with windows media player. Now it doesn't work and it complains that the file is corrupt, even the media files on the intro page. I reinstalled the animesuki prefered codec "ffshow" and reinstalled the player. I was thinking my next step would be to uninstall, clear registry, restart then install. But, there is no uninstall option on the add/remove programs menu. I even tried deleting the C:/program files/ windows media player/ folder but it just remakes the files like a parasite. Also, all other media players work! What should i do???

If you really want to remove Microsofts's spyware like programs, download XPAntispy 3.7 (google it). It removes a lot of MS crap like the Messenger, disables useless stuff that can be used against you and does not affect your right to use the Windows Update.

That did not happen in this case because _Sin_ is so boring that he never even had a signature to remove anyway. So why is this text here? To attract attention of course - isn't that what a signature is for?
You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.
