you can turn the media center off by control panel >> uninstall a program >> turn windows features on or off >> untick media center

but if your son is a dedicated hacker, he'll find out how to turn it back on again.

how exactly is he hacking with media center?

Have you Tried Media Lock? Your Son will be able to unlock it unless he does not know how to

To do this go to Tasks then at the very end of the options there is a Media only button click it

The Arab punishment of amputating both hands is known to be very effective in these cases.

Having said that, today's youngsters are very adept with new technology so even that may not stop him.
