Windows Media Center is automatically loading whenever I start up my computer. It's annoying and slows things down considerably. My operating system is Vista. I went into Windows Defender, Tools, Software Explorer, then Startup Programs and disabled windows media center. (I also noticed that Windows Defender was turned off when I tried to open it and had to request that it be turned on). It didn't work because the next time I started my computer there was WMC loading again. So I opened Windows Defender ( it was turned off again) and went through the above procedure a second time. Still didn't work. Where do I go from here? BTW I don't use media center and wouldn't care if I got rid of it. However I tried to uninstall it but it's not listed under programs.
