One big clue when this happens again is to see under the MS update section if any were done on that date of the change. If so, then consider it returns to a more basic XP setting when all is said and done. XP can be problematic as it gets things done in an ad-hoc way since time has passed it by in order to be current. Alas Media Center is NOT heavily supported and it maybe being treated more as std. XP as an entity more than anything else, IMHO.
My OS is Windows XP Media Center Edition.and for appearance I have three choices: Classic, Windows XP and Media Center. I have it set at Media Center, but for some reason it is now every so often changing to Windows XP. This has happened about six times in the last three months. It is not a big deal, it is easy enough to change it back, but I'm really puzzled about why it happens.
Anybody have an idea why?
