If you're set on using Media Player you can try and find the executable in C:\Programs (or something like that). I don't use Windows, so I can't give you an exact address.
Another option would be to install a new media player. My personal favorite is VLC Media Player (Download VLC media player from SourceForge.net). It runs on almost any operating system and I haven't come across a format it can't/won't play. It's also not nearly as bloated as WMP. The biggest downside is that there's no library built-in (like for music and such), but if you only need it to play individual files (rather than in place of a music player like iTunes) VLC will work wonderfully.
