Thanks for your follow-up.

When you turn the WMC feature off it removes a number of registry entries and removes the ehome folder which is in your Windows folder which is usually C:\Windows\ehome. Is there an ehome folder on your system after you turn WMC on?
I have four eHome folders: "C:\Program Data\Microsoft\eHome; "C:\Users\Frank\AppData\Local\Microsoft\ehome" ; "C:\Users\Frank\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\eHom e"; and "C:\Windows\ehome". Please keep in mind, though, that I am not able to turn WMC on, since it is not installed and I can't install it.
WMC uses services "Media Center Extender Service", "Windows Media Center Receiver Service" and "Windows Media Center Scheduler Service". Do you have the WMC services installed?
I have no Windows Media Center or Media Center services.
So how big is your C:\Windows\Winsxs folder?
It is 8.56 GB in size.
If you search the Winsxs folder, how many files have "mediacenter" in their name?
Mine has 20 folders with "mediacenter" in their name, and there are a total of 52 files within those folders.

To answer your other question: No, I did not delete any files from my Winsxs folder.
