Type "windows features" in the search box of the start menu, and click the resulting link.

Sorry if I sound dumb but do you mean BSOD? "Blue/Black Screen Of Death" or the Windows Media Center Blue screen?

Are the media files like videos and musics opening with media center at double click, and that you dont want ?

Right click on the media file , choose properties in the context menu. Then, look at the resulting window , search for "opens with" and click the change button beside it.

Now change it to your desired program, apply and ok.

Okay. Have you tried ending its task from task manager and then try turning off from control panel?

Also have you clicked yes when this confirmation dialogue comes?
