Windows 7: Windows Media Center Has Taken over PC. Help Please

Windows Media Center Has Taken over PC. Help Please

Hi,

Always something new.
Would really appreciate some help with this; have no idea what to do.

I played some videos that I took with my camera and downloaded to PC, and now I have the following problems:

They videos opened up in Windows Media Player, apparently.
Played O.K.

But now, when I click on other Desktop icons having absolutely nothing to do with
pix or video, Windows Media CENTER opens up.

It's as if it has taken over my PC.

What should I do, please.

Also, all my icons on the bottom left of my screen
(the Start Menu I think it is called ?)
now have generic icons. Also a bunch on my Desktop, but not all.

Clicking on any of these also opens up the Windows Media Center.
What should I do ?

How do I get my normal looking icons to show again correctly, and operate correctly ?

Would it be better or more appropriate to post this in a different sub-forum here ?

Much thanks,
Bob

Silly question, but have you rebooted to see if that solves the problem?
