Windows Media Center Media Sharing program. It can cause a problem if you don't have a TV tuner on your WMC computer; you need to disable WMPNSCFG from starting up with your computer to keep from having it crash every time you start your computer. Joseph Houk
Not necessary unless you have the tv remote option. Ben

There is a version of this file that's a trojan. It gobbles up CPU time. In some cases it uses CPU time whenever the computer is on. Other times it uses capacity for 15 or 20 minutes, then stops. When you stop the "process", it just pops up again a starts running! A real pain in the butt. However, there are necessary versions of this file that are part of Media Center. In my case it only effected my m7684n for about 20 minutes after boot, so I learned to tolerate it. However, I finally got PO'd and used Norton live service. (my AV software) They took about an hour to nail it. Scott
In my case a codec pack which i have downloaded generated the problem. I uninstalled it and the problem was gone. Marth
I set it to manual then to disable and it Still pops back up in my task manager after I end it.
My sims2 game won't run correctly and it si a security risk Gwen Burrows

It is a part of Windows Media Center that adds additional multimedia functions. Since I never use the Media Center software installed on my computer I continue to keep it turned disabled. However, certain events seem to trigger a restart of the exe.  See also: Link thefraz

This program allows you to watch live TV in Windows Media Center. If you have an external TV Tuner (USB or PCIe card), you may need to stop this process in Task Manager before removing the TV Tuner. Scott N
windows MCE and AVerTV may have function conflict if you launch both of them synchronusly Maruf
This process started running when I added the Extender to Media Center for XBOX to be able to stream from the laptop David Dickinson
Itt opens mexican TV stations in the background where you cannot turn it off. Ending process just restarts the process again and starts playing more things in spanish in the background. It's like an official Microsoft virus that you can't get rid of. Xander
Go to run and type services.msc, find Media Center Receiver Service, doubleclick, change the 'startup' box to manual, click stop. Gone forever. Nick
I know Nick is right. Go to run, Media Center Service, double click, change startup to manual and stop. Fixed. Chris
