Media center has stopped working

Okie doke after dealing with an entire system upgrade to resolve my other dilemas with a kernal power error 41 and malfunctioning DX 11 on everything, I now have a new issue, getting windows media center to work. new parts and just installed win 7 on this updated machine specs are as follows:

Intel core i7-950 processor @ 3.07 ghz
6 gigs corsair ram
evea nvidia 470 gtx graphics card
Asus P6x58d-e mother board
1k watt cooler master psu
LG BD/dvd/cd rom
dual monitor set up with x2 acer H213H monitors
and all housed in a cosomos S cooler master case

I have tried the repair disc x3 times, I have tried to repair windows from boot up using the ISO disc x3 and even completely reinstalled windows 7 x3 just to get everything working. Was having other issues but now the only thing not working is just windows media center. Any suggestions on how to remedy the dilema. Also i have updated all drivers for everything and I do have windows updates on. Thanks for the help and lemme know if you guys come up with anything. I viewed a few threads about windows media center issues and I know and understand you cant remove it, and it is integrated into windows 7, so you guys wont get that repeat from previous threads.
