Windows 7: MCE Library Issues

MCE Library Issues

My system;
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
XBOX360 Cat5 from PC
Every time I start my XBox and select Media Center to watch an .avi file from my HDD on the PC I need to go to TASKS and select Media Libraries then select Videos and add folders to the library from my computer. I need to go through this process again everytime I restart the XBox. I know it doesn't need to be this way. When I used to have Vista x64 my MCE would remember my Libraries on my PC. What is wrong now. I've been re-entering my libraries now everyday for over four months and it's driving me crazy

If you need anymore details please let me know.

Thanks for any help you may provide.

Windows 7 x64

System gave me lots of problems, but i prevailed. i installed some new drivers (ICH10) then deleted the extender from MCE. Then added new extender and now everything appears to be working correctly. It was real hard to remove the existing extender, system would hang. So i used the task manager to stop the MCE then rebooted. i needed to do this about three times before i got good control and responses from the PC.
