What I find really annoying in WMP 10 is that the Auto-Rewind option is always enabled. There is no way to change this in Options. All videos, except, for some reason, .wmv or .asf formats, will auto-rewind to the first frame when they reach the end. I would like my home videos to stop a "The End", not on the first frame of the movie.

Even changing registry keys doesn't change this behavior.

Could someone check if this has been fixed in WMP 11?

Finally, I have no interest for the whole "Library" concept, as all my music and videos are well classified in real folders/subfolders.

Also, can WMP 11 be properly uninstalled through Control Panel, or is it necessary to do a System Restore to go back to WMP 10
