    I have been running Windows Vista Home Premium edition on a Sony Vaio laptop
    VGN-FE31M for about 6 months without a problem. All of a sudden I am having
    problems with Media Center. When I start media center I get a message that a
    vital component of media center stopped working and that I should restart
    the software.

    Looking into the issue I found some information on the problem:
    - Windows Media Center Service Launcher was stopped, if I try to restart
    this seemingly works.. but the service stops about 30s later and I seem
    unable to keep it running.
    - Problem signature (Dutch software):
    Probleem met handtekening
    Naam van probleemgebeurtenis: CLR20r3
    Probleemhandtekening 01: ehrec.exe
    Probleemhandtekening 02: 6.0.6000.16386
    Probleemhandtekening 03: 4549b54b
    Probleemhandtekening 04: ehepg
    Probleemhandtekening 05: 6.0.6000.0
    Probleemhandtekening 06: 464282fa
    Probleemhandtekening 07: 3a6
    Probleemhandtekening 08: 0
    Probleemhandtekening 09: .NullReferenceException.A3A9566D
    Versie van besturingssysteem: 6.0.6000.
    Landinstelling-id: 2067
    - I can also confirm that the issue started without apparent cause. There
    were no automatic updates or other software installs that occured at the
    time the problem occurred first.
    - In MCE logs I find a returning complaint that it is unable to remove a
    recording movie file of more or less the time that the problems began.
    However that movie file isn't there any more.
    - Finally: the error arrives when I want to watch TV recordings, I get no
    error messages looking at digital camera pictures or movies.

    If anyone can help me, please?

    based on the error message, it sounds like a .net framework error.

    Would recommend using Aaron Stebner's .net framework removal tool found on
    the useful tools link of Aaron Stebner's blog on the left,
    then reinstall the .net framework versions that were uninstalled and see if
    that helps...
