Subject: Tech: Removing MusicMatch Jukebox

A year or more ago, I tried to remove MusicMatch from my system (WinXP) through the Change/Remove Programs feature (I use RealPlayer and Windows Media Player, by preference) and it won't let me do it properly. It did remove a component or two. Even now, when I want to play music it goes first to MM and tells me that there's an error and I then have to go activate one of the others.

Why is that? Just now I tried again - and it tells me that it "has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvenience."

Is Music Match an integral part of Microsoft?

Also - change your default player

If all else fails - in safemode change the final extentions in the Music Match Folder

I'll suggest this freeware utility software

http://www.revouninstaller.com/

as being ideal for the purpose of eliminating all the hidden crap
microsoft windows Uninstall fails to remove.

It was positively recomended in UK "Sound on Sound" magazine
and is now an indispensible tool on all my PCs.

Windows uninstall can only uninstall programs that were installed in accordance with the Windows specification.

Music Match Jukebox is NOT A MICROSOFT PROGRAM, so it's possible that it doesn't use standard Windows installation, in which case one can't rationally blame Microsoft if the standard uninstall doesn't work properly. Blaming Microsoft irrationally is fairly widely accepted practice, so go ahead and stick with the mob if you like.

In WinXP the program that Windows attempts to open when you click on a file can be changed in Control Panel|Folder Options, on the File Types tab. If you find the file extension(s) that have problems and click on them, it should tell you what program is set to open a particular file type.

For programs that conform to Windows standard installation methods, removing a program should delete the program from this list for all file types set to use that program. Removing a non-conforming program may leave the instruction to use a program that no longer exists, or that was damaged by an attempted removal.

Just change the setting to another program that is on your computer, and your files will stop trying to use the program that was removed or was "broken" by the attempt to remove it.

John
