Sounds like the file type associations aren't right. Are there only media files on your desktop?

Something to check is...
Control Panel
Search 'Associate a file type'
Check to see which programs are launching for your different file types.

Right click the files on your desktop and look at properties to see which file type they are. If they are NOT media files, but the file mappings are still pointing to open them in Media Player, maybe it's time to roll back your system to an earlier date with system restore?
