What operating system are you using?

If it is XP or XP Pro, go to system restore and pick a restore date from before you began experiencing this problem.

You could try downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player, as well as any programs that might be used to open the files. (eg: Quicktime, RealPlayer etc...)

Just a suggestion, hope it helps.

Use Windows Explorer (not IE) to access a wav or MP3 you have in any file, right click on it, choose "open with" and then choose one of the media players.

What happens?
