    I've just downloaded windows media player, after installation, it said that the application can not be opened because it may be damaged or is incomplete. What shall I do? How to uninstall it??? Please help!

    drag it to trash. empty trash.
    ~/Library/Preferences/Windows Media Player Prefs <-- delete that file
    ~/Library/Preferences/Windows Media Favorites

    the first step should uninstall it - the next two are if you&#39;re paranoid.

    Hehe, (this is not a dig at you) but spot the switcher. "How do I uninstall all the erroneous pieces of coding that my old operating system has dumped in useless places?"
    "Drag the app into the trash"
    "No, I didn&#39;t want to delete it - I wanted to uninstall the program"
    "Yes, drag the app into the trash"
    "...oh."
