Windows 7 Pro-x64

How did you remove it?
Does any reference show up in Uninstall Programs? Like Flash for MCE. if it does, uninstall it.

While you're there, click on "Turn Windows Features on or off" in the left pane.
In the popup, expand Media Features.
Check-mark Windows Media Center, click OK*

You may need your install disk.

*If the check mark is already there, uncheck it, click ok then restart your PC.
Go back to features then check mark it.
