I have just re-installed Windows XP due to a problem with it. Media Centre
was working immediately after this. However, after upgrading to S3 I now
receive a message which reads: "A critical Media Center process has
unexpectedly failed. If problem persits, please restart your machine and try
again, or contact Technical Support. Code 3." I had setup the Media Center to
record a program at 9pm tonight, but the record buttons are disabled. Any
immediate solution would be appreciated. Thank you.
