    I have an HP m300y computer running Microsoft Windows XP
    Media Center 2004. Every time I restart the computer,
    after I configure the Media Center, I get a "Media Center
    Host Module" error. The error deals with the hpRec.exe
    file, confirmed by HP. The error goes away for the next
    restart only if I delete the eHome directory, which is
    the Media Center directory that gets recreated if
    deleted. But then the error comes back when I restart
    the computer again. HP is working on this problem for
    me, but I was wondering if anyone else has any input.
    One fix that HP recommended was installing the new driver
    for the NVIDIA display software. I did this, with no
    success.

    This is happening to me too. I'm glad you had better luck with HP Support
    than I did. They just kept telling me to reinstall. I gave up on them.
    Someone on this forum posted that it was a problem with the latest DirectX
    update. I have also seen the problem when certain Creative support software
    is installed.

    Ya' gotta love it...

    Cheers,
    Rob

    OK, try this, go to control panel, administrative tools, services,
    scroll down to Media center scheduler, double click it, and click
    disable. This stope ehRec.exe from starting. So far everything seems
    to work fine, too.

    OK, i got this thing licked,....I think... :roll: ehRec.exe control
    the scheduling of programs to be recorded. When I set a program to b
    recorded it started fine. So I hit Control/Alt/Delete, and unde
    services it was there running. So it also knows that its not turne
    on and restarts it as needed. It only has the problem at start up. S
    I just turned off error reporting and all is fine now
