Thumbs down Windows Media Player blue screens, restarts my computer

Noticed this on my HP laptop with windows xp. Its been happening once in a while. Sometimes when I play a dvd through media player, or open it to play an audio stream it will just suddenly blue screen with some code, then restart windows. After it reboots and I get a "windows just recovered from a serious error" message "send report" it says on Microsoft's website that I had encountered a "Stop error".

Is this a new bug from Microsoft? I think I have the latest updates
