when I try to download a feature or program from the net-it keeps opening up on Windows Media Centre ? I know I've did something wrong to my PC-can anyone help me.!

It sounds like a file association problem; can you be a bit more explicit on what type of files you are downloading, what extension they have and if you are trying to run them directly from the download or saving them to your hard drive.

to chub_tor when I tried to open the statement "hard drive"-it immediately started windows media center. Does this help to clarify ?

If this problem is a recent one then you should be able to fix it by going to System Restore and restoring to a time before it happened.

tried disabling all windows media as suggested and it still doesn't work ?

Have you tried a System Restore? You won't lose data, but you will have to re-install any programmes installed after the date of the re-install.
