I had a similar problem when trying to watch full screen videos in the browser. It turned out that the problem was caused by me changing the text size setting to "Larger - 150%" (in Control Panel -> Display). When I changed it back to "Smaller - 100% (default)", the problem went away. It's possible that Windows Media Player doesn't play nice with this setting either.
