    Hi all,
    I'm hoping for some assistance please.
    I have a PC running Windows 10 home edition. There was a windows update recently and windows media centre stopped working.
    I have attempted the following without success.
    * Opened up Cmd is a command prompt as an administrator, ran the uninstall command. The Windows media center was still there
    * attempted to run the blue and green installer - was saying that windows media centre is still there.
    * Attempted to download 8.8.5 and install it, it stated that the windows media centre was already installed.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Which version of installer did you use last time you installed?
    Can you check to see if \windows\ehome actually exists?

    The C:\Windows\ehome folder does exist.

    Hi I believe that I installed the 8.8.4 version last time.

    When I run the uninstaller I get the following from the 8.8.4 uninstaller -

    Deleting schedule tasks...

    Uninstalling assemblies...

    Deleting services...

    Removing registry settings...

    Deleting files...


    Done.
    A reboot is recommended before trying to install the pack again.

    Press any key to exit.

    Hi,
    It seems as though I've managed to resolve it.
    I have Comodo antivirus installed which proceeded to run the installer and uninstaller in a sandbox. I've since managed to uninstall version 8.8.4 and install 8.8.5. I'm running a TV scan as we speak for mums TV card. It seems to be detecting TV channels.
    Thank you.

    Well, that antivirus certainly is protecting you.
