Media player 10. Tried to delete in add/remove programs. When click delete
messasge comes up to "restart windows before continuing with rollback. save
your work, close all windows and then restart windows. " I shut down
computer and still nothing. Is there some other way to restart windows? Am
I missing someting.

Also Media format runtime is on add/delete list. should i delete that?

You cannot "delete" Windows Media Player as it is a core
component of the Windows XP operating system.

Why do you want to "delete" it? Are you having issues?

Denese, your best option is to run the System Restore Wizard to undo the
changes caused by downloading an upgrade for MP9. This process will undo
other updates and changed settngs from the period between the Restore Point
you choose and today.
Go to Help and Support. Under "Pick a Task," on the right-hand side, choose:
"Undo changes to your computer with System Restore."
System Restore is reversible, should you want to undo it.

Ummm....how is a media player deemed a core component of an operating
system? A media player is just an application that allows one to view media
files. MS just purposefully made it difficult to remove, just as it did
with MSN Messenger.
