Windows Media Player locks up computer *entirely*

This just started tonight.

Any time I try and play any sort of file with Media Player, it *instantly* crashes.

Then I get a message that *Windows* (I'm using XP) has crashed.

Then things start to lock up entirely and I end up being forced to shut down the computer manually and restart it.

I even tried starting an avi file with Media Player classic, and it did the same thing.

Just wondering what sort of virus I have, because I assume I have a virus.
