  1. Hey guys I receive this error any time I boot up my computer. Does anyone know where it comes from or how to get rid of it?

    Try going to Start > Run > msconfig > Ok/Enter. Then scroll through the "Services" tab and look for "Media Center Receiver Service" and tick off the check next to it. Click Ok and that should disable the troubled application from loading on your startup (reboot or log off/on again to check it out).

    The service is used for TV/FM reception, so if you're using a TV tuner, disabling it might prevent you from doing what you need to do. Otherwise it's harmless.

    If you still get the error, try disabling "Media Center Scheduler" in msconfig as well.

    This is all just a guess, but worth a shot and it's harmless to try.
