Windows 7: MCUpdate.exe

MCUpdate.exe

I found this in my event viewer under media center, would prefer not to have this running and giving me some sports schedule. I guess it does this everyday, not good.

Is there a safe way to get rid of this?

Hello George,

mcupdate is only a task in Task Scheduler for Media Center that runs automatically periodically to update Windows Media Center. It's nothing to worry about. Without it, your schedule will not be updated.

If it's waking up your computer to run, then the tutorial below can stop it.

Windows Media Center Updates - Enable or Disable Waking Computer

Hope this helps,
Shawn
