Default Media player icon disappeared???

My WMP icon disappeared off my desktop on my desktop and laptop about 5 min ago? I can't get it back either? I can go into my music file and double click it to play and it'll bring WMP back up but I can't get the icon back? I was just sitting here and I noticed my screen blank and then the icon was gone, about a min after that my laptop did the same. Help.


Thanks, Andy
