Sounds like the association is still there. But need more info to help.
What Windows flavour are you using? win95/98/98se/me/nt/2000/xp?
What program used to open up when you double click on the Midi file?

You have correctly uninstalled the program via Add/Remove Programs but as mentioned by the other person you may have to reassociate your midi files with another program.

Have a look at these two pages for info on changing them:

UltraPlayer should be in the Add/Remove list in both WinXP and Win98, if it isnt it may pay to re-install it, and then uninstall.

Like all these players, they like to take over as the only player, so it is best before uninstalling to go into the Options and uncheck all the file type associations. Then go to Media Player or what have you, and check the file types you desire. Then try opening a file, if it still tries to associate with UltraPlayer, then use 'Open With' and specify the player you want, and check the always open with this program box. That should remove the UltraPlayer associations.

If all else fails with uninstalling a program, then delete its folder in Program Files, and run a Registry cleaner to remove the redundant entries. If you have a dll orphans program run that to remove any .dll files that are no longer being used.
