Although Windows XP Media Center Edition is based on Windows XP Professional, Microsoft has disabled its ability to join an Active Directory domain post install in the last version. This effectively precludes its use in a corporate environment. Media Center still retains most other Windows XP Professional-specific features, such as Remote Desktop and the Encrypting File System.

At microsoft.com you can find opinions that MCE is based up Pro or Home.

Use the Processes tab in Task Manager to see what's taking up the CPU cycles. If this isn't enough, go to the View menu item, then Select Columns, then check the IO Read, IO Write, and IO Other entries. This will reveal what's accessing your hard drive.

That's a common problem with McAfee - and the usual cure is to uninstall/reinstall. Good work! :thumbsup:
