Media players close whenever I play Mp3's or video's

  1. Can you guys give me some advice? Everytime I try to play a song or a video my media players just open then close.???? I have Window's media player 10 and real player and they are both doing it. I tryed to do a system restore, but I have no restore dates since the new year and it won't let me go before that. I could use the VAIO recovery wizard, but I have a lot of stuff I don't want to lose. Do you guys know what's going on here? I have a Sony VAIO VGC-RA830G.

    When I go to my add or remove programs thing windows media player doesn't show up on there. It does the same thing when I use realplayer too.
