    All you should need to do is go to your Control Panel / Multimedia / Devices tab and look under "Audio Compression Codecs". All your installed codecs will be listed there. You can re-prioritize them, disable certains ones if you wish, or remove individual codecs.

    As far as I'm aware the lame codec is just a signle dll file - i.e. just remove the file.

    But may I ask why you want to get rid of it?

    I'm running vista. I can't see any multimedia tab.

    edit: i want to remove it because it is messing up another program that i am using and i don't really know what it does either

    Yeah LAME is just a .dll, it's not used as a codec but rather as an encoder.
