Well the most obvious thing as Media Player is working in Safe Mode is some form of infection.

Update your AV program and scan the system in Safe Mode to see if you have any Viral Infections. You'll also need to run Spy Ware Scans as well so you can download Ad aware from

Spy Bot S&amp for m here

and if you don't have a working AV product you'll find AVG Home from here

You'll need to not only install but Update every one of these programs before booting into Safe Mode to scan the system and when you find any infections remove them and then rerun the scan just to make sure that it was actually removed.

If you find something that can not be removed you'll need to post back as to what it is so we can point you to a removal link.
