Hi, Try Spywareblaster, it adds a ton of advertising sites to the IE Restricted zone.

www.javacoolsoftware.com

You may need these two downloads if running an older operating system (win9x)>> If Spywareblaster will not run, produces a message about "missing files" or VBRuntimes, you need those two downloads....

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/downloadfaq.html

That URL you keep seeing the blank page from is a well known adserver. Probably, you have a popup blocking software that keeps the content from showing so it's blank. Spywareblaster will help with this sort of thing.

It looks like that is the location MSN Messenger downloads its adverts from but why it opens an IE page when you open Media Player I am not sure.
Check Media Player's options to see if there is something making it connect to the internet. Make sure none of the boxes are checked under the privacy tab.
