If you want to uninstall Windows Media Center, either because it consumes a lot of memory or by default opens all your files, then follow these steps:
- Go to Start> Control Panel> Programs and Features.
- In the left pane, click "Enable or disable Windows features".
- In the dialog that opens, scroll to the "Media features" section and uncheck the box next to "Windows Media Center".
- Click on Accept to validate.
