Reboot your computer.
Start pressing the F8 key every second or so as soon as you see the manufacturers logo.
Select Safe Mode with Networking from the Advanced Boot Options menu.
Pick Administrator to login with. There should be no password.
Open Control Panel then User Accounts.
Click on your user account icon and check if it's an Administrator level account.
If not, make it one.
If yes, then it's possible you have picked up some kind of malware. Go to the Spyware / Malware / Virus Removal forum, read the info there and follow the posted directions. Once you receive a clean bill of health, come back here if you have any additional questions or concerns or it turns out not to be a malware problem.
Please be patient as that is a very busy area. If you do not receive a response in 3 days, post a message here: What To Do If You Have No Response In 3 Days?
Do not reply to your post there as the malware folks look for posts with no replies first.

I am not too concerned with the Windows Media Player as my player of choice is VLC Media Player.
