I have an Acer Aspire E1-572P and Ive been having a problem

Resolved Question:

I have an Acer Aspire E1-572P and I've been having a problem with my music and movie player. I'd be able to open up the application but after a couple of seconds it would freeze, I'd return to my desktop and open it back up but it would restart and go through the whole process again of signing in and freezing.
