Many problems with VLC are due to wrong settings or broken cache. You can solve these through deleting VLC's preferences and cache.

On Windows

Using the shortcut in the start menu

If you installed VLC properly you can delete the preferences and cache by simply opening the shortcut you can find in your start menu: All programs > VideoLAN > Reset VLC media player preferences and cache files

Deleting the files manually

Open the explorer and type %APPDATA% into the address bar and hit enter. This should lead you to the AppData folder of your user. Therein you should find a folder named vlc. Delete that folder and your done.
