When you installed the games, was there anything that installed that was related or needed the Media Center?

While not familiar with these games - but I wonder if the demo is kicking off the Media Center. Try uninstalling it to see if it stops.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

k, the World in Conflict is a demo, Bioshock is the full game and it still starts up media center after playing these games, No other games are doing this just the demo of World in Conflict and bioshock Its more annoying then anything.

Hey, I have the same problem. Every time I close World in Conflict demo I get Windows Media Center opening. Has anyone found a solution yet? or do we all just agree that windows vista is really buggy?
