Windows 7: Windows Media centre does not stay on the start screen

Windows Media centre does not stay on the start screen

When I start windows Media Centre the start screen comes up then disappears and the extras screen comes up . I have removed and installed the Media Centre several times with the same result. I have two other computers on the network and the Media Centre installs ok on them but the one I want to use it on will not let me set it up. Windows updates are current and I have run the file checker and the system repair on the install disc without finding any problems. Would appreciate any help
