I have a vista compter my windows media center keeps crashing after it's open for only a few seconds something pops up and says A problem caused the program to stop working correctly windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. In the problem report it just tells me to look for updates which I have already done. Another site told me to delete mediacenterdatastore.db I did this and it still doesn't work. I've also tried running the program as a system administrator but it still closes after only a few seconds

Welcome to TSG!

First thing I'd try is running System File Checker (SFC):

Click Start, type cmd, when cmd.exe appears in the list, right click it and click Run as administrator
Type SFC /ScanNow and press Enter.

Also, post some of the error messages:
Click Start, type problem reports.
Click on Problem Reports and Solutions when it appears in the list.
Click View problem history in the left pane.
Right click a problem, click View problem details.
Click the Copy to clipboard link at the bottom (nothing visible happens).
Switch back to your browser, click in the Reply window and press CTRL+V to paste the problem report.
If they all have the same info, just post one, if they are different post two or three of the latest.

This must have been when it first stopped working. It hasn't been working for awhile
