MCE remote green button doesn't work (1 Viewer)

I've had the green button working for almost 2 years but suddenly my antivirus thought it had to delete something so now it doesn't work anymore.
I can't remember what I did to get it working. It had something to do with a .bat-file? Or replacing the ehshell.exe?

I tried disabling the media center services and autostart MPTray through Mediaportal settings but it still doesn't work.
When I hit the green button nothing happens, not even an error message.

Any suggestions?

I'm using MediaPortal 1.5

I already read this section, disabled the services and activated MPTray, but absolutely nothing happens when I press the green button.

    Sorry, that simply worked out of the box for me. Did you read over the trouble-shooting section at the bottom of that page?

    I've also found this, if it's any use to you. My understanding of it is that if your remote is not a "true" MCE remote then the built-in green button solution may not work but there is a work-around using the ehshell.exe file, which you also mentioned. Again, hope this helps...

    Thank you!
    I couldn't find that thread with that special ehshell.exe anymore. With this file everything works!
