    I installed Vista Ultimate on my PC recently and got two problems -Windows
    Media Player and Media Center would crash as soon as I opened them!

    I managed to fix the WMP problem by re-registering some DLLs off the
    microsoft site (if that is what the problem was) but Media Center still
    crashes - Everytime!
    It won't even load the program now! it just comes up with the "MC has
    stopped working" and the close program window pops up although for a few days
    I could actually get to the set up screen but then it just causes the same
    error message and shuts down!

    But what is even stranger is that when I created a new user account Media
    Center worked perfectly!

    Whats going on there? it won't work on my main account but will on another

    If anyone has any solutions to the problem I have had with media center I
    would appreciate it. thanks.
