    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >>Open Control Panel and select Programs and Features.
    >>On the left hand panel click on Turn Windows Features on or off.
    >>Scroll down to Media Features and expand the folder. Then Uncheck Windows Media Cente.
    >>You’ll get a verification message making sure you want to disable it, click Yes .
    >>Then the box next to Windows Media Center will be empty click OK.
    >>Wait while WMC is disabled
    >>To complete the process a reboot is required.
    >>After getting back from the restart, the WMC icon will be gone and there won’t be any way to launch it.

    Disable Media Center Using Group Policy
    Note: This process uses Group Policy Editor which is not available in Home versions of Windows 7.
    Click on the Start menu and type gpedit.msc into the Search box and hit Enter.
    Now navigate to User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Media Center.
    Double-click on Do not allow Windows Media Center to run. Then select the radio button next to Enabled, click OK and close out of Group Policy Editor.

    Thank you.

    urn Off WMC Using Programs and Features
    [FONT=Verdana]Probably the easiest way to get rid of it on all versions of Windows 7 is to open Control Panel and select Programs and Features. This method is similar to disabling the internet explorer 8 in window 7 the left hand panel click on [/FONT]Turn Windows Features on or off[FONT=Verdana].[/FONT]

    Scroll down to Media Features and expand the folder. Then Uncheck Windows Media Center…

    You’ll get a verification message making sure you want to disable it, click Yes.

    Then the box next to Windows Media Center will be empty…click OK.

    Wait while WMC is disabled…


    To complete the process a reboot is required.


    After getting back from the restart, the WMC icon will be gone and there won’t be any way to launch it.


    Follow the steps below to to add the missing key to the registry:
    Click Start and type regedit, in the search box, then click Regedit from the returned list
    Locate the following registry subkey:


    HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion
    Once you locate the registry subkey, right-click the CurrentVersion registry key , and click New and then click Key
    Type RunOnce in the text area and then press the Enter key on your keyboard
    Exit the Registry Editor

    Re: Steps to uninstall Windows Media Center in Windows 7?

    HELLO FRIEND ,

    Even though Windows Media Centre is integrated part of the operating system and cannot be uninstalled

    or removed from WIN 7, the WMC services can be turned off and disabled so that it won’t run or start even

    when WMC button is pressed or when users click from Start Menu,

    exactly as if Media Center is not installed.

    In fact, there are more than one way to disable Windows Media Center or prevent it from running in WIN 7
    Disable Windows Media Center Services



    Open Services (type services.msc into Start Search). Locate all services related to Windows Media Center, such as Windows Media Center Extender Service, Windows Media Center Receiver Service, Windows Media Center Scheduler Service and Windows Media Center Service Launcher, and any other services started with “eh” as command names, then set their Startup Type to Disabled.





    ALL THE BEST

    Dear friend,

    You can't Uninstall Windows Media Center.

    But you can turn off this feature of Windows 7 i.e. Windows Media Center.

    Just visit Control Panel and open Programs and Features.

    Now, in the left pane window, choose "Turn Windows Features On and Off".

    Uncheck the box of Media Features>>Windows Media Center.

    Now, click on OK button to finalize settings.
