In my effort to minimize the number of processes running, I've found that ehtray.exe is for Media Center, something I rarely use. How do I keep this file from loading during start up or running?

I discovered this myself, when you disable the process in msconfig or Windows Defender it will generate a duplicate process. If you delete the startup entry it will create a new entry the next time you open Media Center.

1. First you must take ownership of the file itself (ehtray.exe) and then you must give yourself full control over it. You can find instruction on how to take ownership and allow for full control here:

Once you have ownership and full control, rename ehtray.exe to ehtray.old, or you can simply delete the file and it will no longer waste resources and Media Center will still function perfectly without out.
