There is a possiblity that you may have inadvertly deleted some system files need for Windows Media Player etc, try verifying your windows installation by using the sfc /scannow command you may need your original copy of windows to hand to access this go to start, run type cmd and at the prompt type sfc /scannow

Hope it helps
