Now my MP3 player after a song finishes it just shuts itself off. Then when I turn the on/off switch off and then back to on it just says "starting" with an hourglass and nothing happens. It does this too when I plug it into my computer to download songs.

Sounds like your battery may be at fault, or if you rely on the usb to charge, then maybe it's not charging it due to power settings on the pc. Try charging from the mains without the player being turned on, for about 20-30 mins. Then turn on and if the problem is still there, then it's the battery.
Sorry I don't know where the "Profiling requires 4mg of free space" came from. But one thing I do know is that one GB of space should hold up to approx 600-650 songs unless they are WAV files then they take up 30 megabytes per song.
It is possible that the memory or settings have been corrupted.
Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD. Select the restore / repair option and follow the on-screen prompts.
This will re-install the firmware and format the player.
When the process has finished, restart the player. It will initiallize and then shut down again.
Switch on again and you'll get an "updating" message.
The player will now be empty. This should also cure the alphabetical list problem.
This happens to me to but only when Im listening to a long playlist and I haven't switched anything in a while, but if you go to "settings" and the to "auto shut-off" you can set the time you want it to auto shut off, usually it is on 5mins, so when the 5 minutes are up that you haven't touched it, it will shut off, i belive you sett it all the way up to 125 minutes, hope this helps!
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
