I am running Windows 7 Professional. When I start the computer the initial desktop is Windows Media Center. How do I prevent Windows Media Center from auto starting. I am using VLC for music files.
all existing programs on my computer when opened that arises iswindows media center, I've tried in the same way but still can not.What should I do?
this is a different question. It seems like your shortcut (LNK) files have been associated with Windows Media Center. To fix this, you need to run a registry fix. You can download the fix here (ZIP file): http://www.winhelponline.com/fileasso/lnkfix_vista.zip
See first reply to this question: How can I change or fix .lnk file associations on Windows 7?

You can disable the auto start in Media Center. Open Media Center, then go to > Tasks > Settings > General > Startup and Windows Behavior and uncheck > Start Windows Media Center when Windows starts.
Alternatively, you can go to > Start and type > msconfig into the search field, hit > Enter. The > System Configuration will open. Switch to the > Services tab and uncheck Windows Media Center.
Please let us know whether this answer solved your question. Thank you!
I tried the first method. Voila, no more Windows Media Center when Windows starts.
I don't know why you would call me Lisa, but you do sound like my Mom or Dad. They also call me by my sister's name. Very strange of you! lol
