    New problem - only while viewing TV in Media Center 04 XP Pro SP2....all
    other windows working normally. I can only view in maximized screen size.
    When i restore the size so that i can move the window or resize it, it
    dissappears off the left side of my screen. I can still hear the program,
    but there is only a tab showing media center is open on the toolbar. i can't
    seem to "drag" it back to the center of my's just totally gone.
    Obviously,when it's maximized, i can't move the window. I did a restore to
    before the problem started, but to no avail. Thanks for any help!

    I have the exact same problem that you fixed for Sailor Sue. I am hoping you
    can help me fix mine too. When I have Media Center maximized and click on the
    minimize button I don't get the REMOVE. I get a box coming up saying Settings
    and Messenger.

    I tried to right click the Media Center shortcut icon on the desktop and
    chose : Open in a normal window. That didn't work.
    I went in and checked all the settings in Media Center that didn't work. I
    can get MOVE when I right click the minimized Media Center on the taskbar at
    the bottom but you can't move it with only the tab on the taskbar screen
    showing. As the other post said I can see it going somewhere off my screen
    when I click on it.

    Any other ideas. I even phoned HP Tech support and all the could suggest was
    to restore the Media Center software. I am running version 5.1.2715.3011
    which I assume is the 2005 edition that windows download probably updated the
    original to.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Different situation to a similiar situation.

    I can watch media center only maximized. When I hit the middle square box
    in the upper right hand corner of the window (unmaximize or whatever), I only
    see the software on the task bar and I hear it, but that's it.

    Suggestions? and thanks.
