    Issue seems related to WMP database system. So, firstly you should clear the database files from WMP. Follow the procedure:

    -> click on Start option and go to Run
    -> Type '%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player' and hit ok
    -> A folder will open and you have to delete all the files, you will see delete option under file menu
    -> Don't delete any folders, only delete files and restart media player

    * If the issue still persisting then,
    -> Open Run box, type %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft and click on ok
    -> Now, delete Media player folder and restart it again.
