get winamp it is far superior to windows media player and you get the added bonus of internet radio stations at cd quality

Other players' mp3 decoders can cause this problem if they are not compatible with Win MP.

Purely for t'shooting purposes, try uninstalling all the other players, ONE at a time, & check Win MP mp3 playback each time if this problem recurs. If it doesn't then there's a good chance the media player (or more accurately, it's mp3 decoder) you've just uninstalled was causing the problem.
