Default ALL icons on laptop appear as Windows Media Player icon

On my daughters school laptop, all icons on the desktop (except Recycle Bin) and on the bar carries the Windows Media Player icon. When you pass the cursor over the icon, you see the program there (eg Internet Explorer), but when you open it, media player opens.
Can someone please help me rectify that situation.

We need to know which version of Windows is installed.

Two possible solutions here:

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Noteboo...f/td-p/2769101

Also, sometimes a simple system restore can correct these issues unless something like a registry cleaner or tweak tool is involved in which case the solution might be a lot more complex.

One of the links above then should contain the solution.
