Not sure about the media player, but there is a hidden folder in windows XP called C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache.

It keeps and extra copy of the screen savers in there and when you delete them from the system32 folder, it replaces them.

First delete them from the dllcache and then delete them from the system32 folder.

I believe that a copy of media player is also included there.
