I just found out that the installer also adds an extension to Firefox (Interest Recognizer For Moovida) that has the uninstall option greyed out!! I had to completely uninstall Moovida to remove the add-on from my browser!
I can NOT recommend this crap to any one.
Stay away. Far, far away.

Installer is very bad.
1) No option to set installation folder.
2) No option to control start menu items
3) No option to control desktop shortcut
4) Takes control of ALL media files by making itself the only option for playing audio, video and all other types of media.
Player is OK. But the installer $uck$.
