When I try to run my live tv I get a message that files needed to display video are missing or corrupt and it asks me to restart the Media Center. I did that but it did not resolve the issue.

I think this refers to the MPEG decoders required to show TV in media center.
You need to install Power DVD or a stand alone decoder from NVidia or ATI

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center

Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

Happy Holidays!
well, if you got experience on reformat OS, do so, Go ahead and format and install the Windows Media Center, there could be something missing from the restored past installation.
Wheather or not you see the right drivers, in control panel, is a best way to reformat the system and if you got all the drivers, install them after the OS installation..
good luck
