Windows 7: WMC randomly won't start automatically?!

WMC randomly won't start automatically?!

Hi folks,

After checking the box in WMC for "Start Windows Media Center when Windows Starts", WMC won't always reliably start automatically. It may for 2-3 reboots, but after that, it won't. When I go into Startup and Windows Behavior in WMC, the box is mysteriously unchecked!!! Is this a known problem with a known fix?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
