WMC not working

I've got win 7 ultimate 64bit. windows media center used to work just fine. I had my xbox set up as an extender and that worked fine too. But now when I try to launch it I get a message saying "Windows media center has stopped working, windows is checking for a solution to the problem" with a loading bar. It lasts for a few seconds and then disappears. nothing happens, it doesn't fix it. Also Windows picture viewer no longer works, I get a pictureviewer.dll error message. Am I missing some drivers, or maybe they got misplaced? what's going on here?

What did you upgrade from? XP or Vista? Had you been running a 64 bit OS?

Did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor? You can run it on W7, review the 64 bit tab after running it.
