I went home this past weekend and everything on my laptop was fine...when I got back to my apartment my Wireless internet wasn't working, so I am hooked up directly to my modem for now. I doubt any of this is relevant, but my computer was running perfectly fine over the weekend.

Anyway, when I turned on my laptop for the first time since I've been back it was going very very slow. Every 2-3 minutes, a Windows Error pops up reading "Media Center Receiver Service has encountered a problem and needs to close."

I have no idea what to do...I just had to buy a new hard drive from Dell like 3 months ago...I'm so sick of this laptop. :thumbsup:

Googling "Media Center Receiver Service has encountered a problem and needs to close" gets a lot of responses. Some discuss replacing dlls and another has a repair tool, etc. Here is one link. http://forums.techarena.in/showthread.php?t=517805

I doubt if this is a malware problem and you may get better info by posting in the XP forum if that is your OS.
