Check this with some other files and see if they are working or not. If they are, then there is some problem with the previous files, might be corrupt.
Otherwise use another media player like GOM or download the newest version of VLC

Still failing ?
After downloading new version or playing other files ?

P.S. It would be good if you can write a little bit more properly :)

okay. the thing is all the programs that i am using have all failed. this is what my problem is; for example the icon for Adobe reader X, right now it appears as that of the vlc unlike before and all i want is to change it back to normal because it has failed to open

You've probably broken the .exe file association. Download and run the exe registry fix.

Beyond that, you can manually change the icon if that is bothering you. Within the program files location, there is usually an .ico file. You can go to the properties of the icon, and change its icon.
