Error Strong name validation failed windows\ehome\ehshell.exe while trying to open Media Center on xp computer

*-Original Title - Media Center errors!

Running Win XP  with Media Center Edition 2002 Service Pk 3


When I try to open Media Center I get:

Stong name validation failed


The file may have been tampered with or it was partially signed but not fully signed with correct private key.


and upon clicking on that I get:




I have done 3 clean re-installs and after each one everything works fine until all the updates install.


I have been reading all the posts and have yet to find one that might even work. Even trying most of them.

Don't really know which sub title to look under any more.

Thank you for any help.






1.What is the make and model of the computer?

2.Did you make any changes to the computer recently?

3.Was media center working fine earlier?

4.What are all the steps you have performed?
