    Media Center (Windows XP SP2)

    I have a friend that has this program built into Windows, Windows Media Center that comes with XP. He has a built in tuner in his machine. When he clickes on the icon on the desktop, the gets the message that the program does not work. Here is the message: ehshell.exe-Strong name validation failed. Strong name validation failed for assembly 'C:WINDOWsehomeehshell.exe. The file may have been tampered with or it was partially signed, but not fully signed with the correct private key. His problem began to occur AFTER he reinstalled Windows XP on his machine. Any assistance or suggestions is very much appreciated. Thanks, John

    What did he use to reinstall XP?
    It MUST be a CD labeled "Windows Media Center " or the "System Recover" built into his OEM machine.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave thank you for the reply. He tells me that he used the CD that came with his machine, a Gateway. He is not able to see any sign of the program on the CD and it must be buried in the Windows code somewhere. John

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Could you ask your friend what the lable on the CD says. Media Center is an "overlay" or add on to the OS and as such, should install from the CD when XP is installed or if the system shipped with a Restore Partition it would install from there when the system was restored to it's original, factory shipped condition.
