    Anyone received the MCE 2004 crash message at boot saying 'Media Center Host
    Module encountered an error...'? Seems to happen only if MS Outlook is also
    running at startup, but I can't be sure - may be unrelated.

    Any ideas? Everything else works fine.

    It happens after you install Windows Update:
    Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 819696
    (MS03-030: Unchecked Buffer in DirectX Could Enable
    System Compromise)

    I tried to uninstall it with no success. Informed HP of
    the problem, they knew the problem but hadn't isolated
    the cause yet. Were thankful to know where the problem is
    coming from. Hope they will put a patch to it.

    Thank you! This has been driving me mad. HP Support is clueless about it...
