Windows 7: Media Center Won't Run

Media Center Won't Run

I wouldn't have cared much, but I just got a new MCE remote that I wanted to test, and when it didn't seem to work, I tried to start Media Center manually, but it has disappeared from Quick Launch, and the Start>Search doesn't find it.

I checked in Windows/Ehome and selected the ehshell.exe, and it pops the error in the screenshot. What would be causing this, and how do I fix it?

Thanks, I used the idea about setting Media Center as the default player, and it seems to work, however I do not intend to continue using it as the default player. It would seem that it should work whether it is default or not.
