3 things you can do (i had similar situation)
1- copy ehome library from another win7 pc
2-run sfc /scannow
3- remove media center (untick it) from turn windows features on or off ->reboot->reinstall (tick it) MC again
Good luck!

ok, i finally figured out what the problem was...apparently my region was set wrong on my machine... i had it set for english and it wanted english(canada) idk but it works now..

so just go into control panel and change your region to english(canada) and you should be good to go.. i hope this helps cause it took me forever to figure this out..dumb imo tho
