Media center receiver service error

I have windows xp. Just recently I get this media center receiver error and it wants to close, but I'm not even using media center. The error repeats every few seconds and interupts anything I might be woking on. I tried restarting, same problem. I've hardly used media center and wonder if I should just uninstall.

The only usefull solution i have found is running mcerepair from this site

http://blogs.msdn.com/peterrosser/archive/2005/10/21/483723.aspx

Its from the microsoft developer network so while not being official it is from someone at microsoft

alternativly you could run "sfc /scannow" from commandline or the start > run dialog, this will return all windows system files to their original versions, it might solve your issue

hope you find this helpfull

Try going into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, click on the Media Center software, if listed, and see if it gives a choice to Change and/or Repair. You'll probably need your Windows CD if/when it prompts for it.

Windows xp media center says has encountered problem needs to clo


Well I would think back to when you started having the Media center problems, and did you make ANY new software installs just before the problem started? If so remove the newly installed program, or try to use "System Restore" to restore your system to a time just before you started having the problems. If this does not work, please post the EXACT wording of the error, eg: "fault in module..." "called from...." or make a screen capture or the error window expanded with all info showing.

Windows xp media center error occurs when trying to record programs


When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.

Try first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.

The media center is part of the WMC operative system. You can also reinstall media center alone using add remove programs, then Add remove windows components. Often that does not work, and you need to use a Windows MCE setup disk to fix the problem.
