I use the shop called limewire and all my songs are ok, if your pics wont open aswell now, would be a good idea to do what muz said Sounds like either a virus or your HDD is going mad lol.

Yeah, it could be an invalid refference(s) in the registry, it may need a clean, try that before you reformat. If that don't work a reformat is due I would think, before you lose anything else.

The other week the start menu disappeared on the olds PC and I tried getting it back. I did AV, AS, Defragged, Reg and system clean/optimise, nothing would make it come back.

One night when I was setting up a printer on the PC (still without the start menu) a BSOD popped up... After stuffing around in the Recovery Console and 3 attempts at trying to get into safe mode it finally allowed me in. I thought I'd better back everything up and reformat. I did and everything is back to normal again now.

try reinstalling VLC. I had a similar problem, the videos wouldn't play it was just a bunch of flashing colors. I decided to reinstall and see if that would work and it did.
