Windows 7: WMC has stopped working after performing an upgrade repair

11 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (upgraded from Windows Visita)
WMC has stopped working after performing an upgrade repair

A few weeks ago I was having a problem trying to install SP1. After trying a number of suggestions and not wanting to prolong this problem I followed the procedure outlined in "How to Do a Repair Install to Fix Windows 7" This seems to have resolved a number of problems but now I have a new one
Each time I try to start WMC it generates a dialog box with the message "WMC has stopped working" Windows is searching for a solution to the problem. But never finds one.
In reviewing the Event Log, it reports the following;
Event 1001, Windows Error Reporting

1) I have run "SFC /verifyonly" and it reports all is well!
2) Under "Turn Windows Features on or off" Have checked, unchecked and checked again "Windows Media Center"
3) under "System Configuration",
General - unchecked "Load startup items"
Services - checked Microsoft services and Disabled all others
Startup - Disabled all
After rebooting I tried to start WMC and got the same results, "WMC has stopped working"
What else can I try short of re-installing upgrade again.

System started out as HP 64bit desktop running Vista Ultimate then upgraded to Window 7 Ultimate.
