    Hi.
    Thanks in advance.
    I'm using Windows XP Media Center
    Media Center won't open.
    I tried removing, then re-installing KB925766. No help.
    Is there a way to re-install just Media Center, without re-installing the whole OS?
    I don't have a Media Center install disk.
    I only have the recovery disk that came with this Gateway.

    Thanks.

    Look in Task Manager (or do a search). Where is ehshell.exe located, what program does it belong to?

    I haven't tried to use it in months. It's already past a usable Systen Restore.
    The program belongs to Windows, I guess. It was there when I got this Gateway.
    C:\Windows\ehome\ehshell.exe
    Thanks,
