How does it take over the computer?

Do you have a virus? Try doing a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Have you rebooted?

Just some suggestions.

Can you close Windows Media Player, or does it come up again?

The Media Library is probably not corrupted. You have a virus, I bet. Download Malwarebytes free and scan. Then install Microsoft Security Essentials.
