-Your system is infected with malware
-Ram is not sufficient or faulty
-Windows media player got corrupted (malware might cause this)
-Your codec files or even one might have gone corrupted (if you installed additional ones)

Recommendations :
-Check your ram. If possible try a different stick
-Download cleanup go to and do the free online scans and you can post a hjt log on this forum.
-Reinstall media player ( you can download it from MS website)
-Uninstall the codec packages. Try.
-Uninstall - reinstall your video drivers.

Good Luck
