Best is to use none - if you want to avoid a mess. For codecs that Windows does not support (e.g. .flv), use VLC - it brings it's own codecs.

The Win7codecs with the x64Components addon will be your best bet.
Upon installation you are taken to a setup and usage page - read it.
These codecs are specifically designed with Media Center use in mind.

Yeah, if any, go with the ones from Shark. Those are the only codecs I would tolerate.
