    I seem to have lost the ability to start up Media Center from my computer. I can start up the program from the remote but fear that if the remote ever gets lost, I'm in trouble! It's obviously on my computer because it works fine. I just can't find the program to start it. I used to have it in my Start Up menu, but had some problems when trying to set up the Xbox Media Center Extender software and lost it after that. Can anyone help, please?

    Create a shortcut and use the Target: %SystemRoot%\ehome\ehshell.exe

    It will start it.

    Thanks for the quick response Dan. I right click from the desktop to create a shortcut and the wizard prompted me to Browse to the program (which I can't find). How can I bypass the Wizard and just enter the Target you gave me? Thanks!

    You can start it using the Start and Run menu options or copy another shortcut and modify it.
