    Did you download the bundle with player and codecs:-
    DivX Bundle
    A codec may have become corrupted. Try reinstalling that particular codec and if that doesn't work reinstall WMP.
    Make sure that you uninstall any other CODEC PACKS that you may have previously installed and reboot your PC between each individual codec installation to avoid further conflicts.

    You could run a program like Codec Sniper and remove damaged or unnecessary codecs. None of the programs you mentioned should have caused those problems with WMP. I have most of them on several systems with no problems. There is likely something else at work.

    The freezing is likely from Explorer trying to read something it doesn't understand.

    If a problem is less than 5 days old in XP then restart the system
    pressing the F8 key and choose Command prompt only Dos or restart in
    Msdos mode and type scanreg/restore and try an older reg(cab
    file)backup,however you may have to re-install some programs and user
    changes if they were installed after this date.
