Hi all!

I'm contemplating on downloading said media player and am wondering if it contains spyware. Is there a way i can check before i download it? Any reviews or interesting experiences with winamp5? :unsure:

Thanks for your feedback! ;)

Just turn off the "Report Anonymous Usage Statistics" and "Check for Updates" and deny any of the AOL stuff it tries to install - then you'll be okay.

Personally, I stuck with 2.8.1.

I use 5...just uncheck the AOL Stuff during install..if you forget..just delete the Icons. I like 5..but, it can be slow on startup & it also hangs on shutdown....50/50 it will go unresponsive. But, I like the look, so I deal.

:rolleyes: Thank you superheros fighting the great fight against spyware for your valuable information. I will take everything you've all shared into consideration.

Another query for you sages is how can i fully get rid of that invasive wmp9 crap off my system all together? I tried to recycle it and then install wmp7.1 but i wasn't able to.

Any ideas? :huh:

If you're on XP or ME, you can't. You're SoL. 98 and 2K can, though.

You always have WMP 6.4, though.

Start - Run

mplayer2

Then hit OK.

If you have ME or XP..you have to do a System Restore back to before you had WMP9...that is the only way....also, I'm not sure because I have WMP8, but there is a "mplayer2" there also...all WMP run off of a WMP 6.4 core....so you can always use that.

I do have windows xp. I guess i am sol.

mplayer2 is a neat trick. Thanks for the tip. Interestingly enough wmp9 wasn't bugging me until something called "Wild Tangent" laid it's hooks into my system and i finally figured out how to get rid of it but then my wmp9 wouldn't work and than i did a system restore and that did the trick.

Thank you lion7718 and Tuxedo Jack for your valued input.
