Windows 7: Media Center pops up while playing with Source Filmmaker

Media Center pops up while playing with Source Filmmaker

So I'm mucking around in Source Filmmaker and then, the screen gets dark, and then suddenly, I get music blaring at me at all directions.

When I looked back over, Windows Media Center showed up in place. I thought malware triggered it so I did my scans, but didn't find anything.

How do you get Media Center completely off?

When you get to Step 2, expand Media Features and uncheck Windows Media Center. After that, Windows will tell you to restart. And then WMC would be gone from Start Menu.
