Take a look at this post:
//http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/12/07/how-to-resolve-ehexthost-crashes-that-can-occur-when-launching-media-center.aspx
It says "The ehExtHost process is a hosting process for Windows Media Center add-ins. When it crashes, it typically means that the add-in itself has crashed inside of its process space. Windows Media Center supports a type of add-ins known as background add-ins. These add-ins are launched when Windows Media Center is launched and run in the background as long as the main Windows Media Center process is running on system. When ehExtHost crashes immediately after Windows Media Center is launched, it typically means that an add-in registered in the background category has crashed."
It has some tips on how to go about resolving the problem. It may be something to do with some other software you have installed. Good luck!

    MSNBC beta seems to have been disabled, irrelevant since I view it on cable hookup. I am able to get internet TV to work after reading some on Aaron Stebner's posts about this issue. Link here http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2...

    Problem seems website related... nothing to do with your PC BETA versions of progs are for gathering data and real-life testing. They will probably come out with a real version in the near future.

Try to install the application again to the computer, in this case I suspect theres a problem with your internet browser, you are trying to open www.msnbc.com website? try google browser http://www.google.com/chrome

and see if it opens.

The mother board on my computer was changed last week. The attempt to re-install my McAfee Total Protection for Small Business, which I purchased with my computer from Dell in August 08, failed. The key...


Dear rosemarycg ,

There can be several causes to your problem.

1. Captured cookies

Every time you install an application on your computer, it is communicating with a remote center, in your case with McAfee Security Center. In order to be able to do so, it installs a small widget on your computer, to identify your settings and login information by the remote server. It is possible that somebody hacked into your computer while somehow your protection was down, and made a copy of the cookies. As a matter of fact it is possible that the intruder got acces to your registration data with Mc Afee and it is using illegaly your personal keycode.

Suggestion: - write or call McAfee and explain them all the situation and ask for a new keycode.

2. Expired licence

Usually the licence for anti-virus or other software applications, provided together with an electronic equipment, have a promo quality first of all. As a matter of fact, the duration of a licence is for a limited period of time.

Suggestion: - check if there exists any data related to licence expiration date

3. Limited number of install attempts

Some software providers are using the system of limited number of installs, especially if the software is acquired as a promo package with an IT&C equipment.

Suggestion: - check when you install the software if in the agreement is specified something about limited number of install attempts

I hope some of the info I provided may be useful to you. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to contact me.

Major issue with recent purchase from Newegg 8600gt silent grahics cards


You bought them inJan 08 and in August 08 the second pait quit working? ask your money back and indeed go for somethign else, ATI Makes some good cards as well.

On the other hand, it remains quite strange that 4 cards died in 8 months time. Did ASUS find a cause for it? i think you should not give up on them but invite them to find the cause of this and come up with a proper solution.
