i'm guessing you have WMC set to run at start up. I believe that is the picture it shows when searching your computer for new or altered files, but I'm not 100% sure.

Did you in Windows Media Center switch off:

1 - Automatically download WMC data in settings/ general/ options for automatic download

2 - Optimization execution in optimization

Some names might be a bit different because I use the Dutch language version of WMC
