This is an odd crash.
If I click the WMC it crashes with out even starting

HOWEVER! If I right-click the same icon and 'Run as Admin' it launches just fine.
EDIT: Deleting the mcepg2-0.db does not solve the issue.

Media Features -> Media Center -> Disable
*Last time I tried that trick Windows failed to re-enable WMC, and I had to do a System Image Restore (<3 Acronis). Hence, why I didn't try it right off the bat.
