    Do you want to share some relevant info so we might help.

    - System specs
    - Is this a new problem or has the system never worked.
    - If it used to work, what has changed/added/updated?

    Do you have adequate space on your hard drive?

    What version of Media Center are you using? Vista, or an earlier Windows XP
    based version.

    If the latter, see if this helps.
