    Aloha all together

    I just got a problem I didn't find an answer to by searching the Forum.
    Windows 7 Home Premium has been installed on my HTPC yesterday and mostly everything worked fine.



    But now I've got a big problem with my remote...
    I'm using the MCE remote via the Logitech Harmony. Worked absolutly fine with my old XP pro.

    But now the Windows Media Center starts as soon as I press any button on the remote.
    It's still working fine in the Media Center... all Buttons are mapped... But I'd like to use MP. :)

    Is there a way to complty disable this function or the Win MC at all?

    Run Group Policy Object Editor (GPEdit.msc), expand Computer Configuration (for per-machine settings if you want disable for all users on the computer) or User Configuration (for per-user settings if you want to disable for logged on user only), then expand Administrative Templates, and finally Windows Components, and select Windows Media Center. Change the setting for Do not allow Windows Media Center to run to Enabled. Once WMC disable policy is set, the following message will appear whenever users trying to run Windows Media Center.
