Hello...first time post here. So I don't recall exactly what I was doing at the time, but now EVERYTHING on my desktop is rerouted to Windows Media Center...iTunes, Google Chrome, Skype...everything. Sometimes WMC will continue popping up despite me not taking any action. Old school internet explorer will work (obviously) but only if I right click and select a pinned site. This tactic does not work with anything else. Norton Antivirus shows I am not infected, but obviously something is amiss... I'd appreciate any help I can get. :clapping:
