Can I remove the Media Center Tray Applet ?
I have a Windows XP SP2 laptop. Since last few days it is running very slow. I did many things I bit speed up mu laptop. But still when I check the task manager, I find ehtray.exe running every time. When I searched about it I came to know that it is somewhere related to Windows Media Center which I rarely use some time. Very less often. So I wanted to know is it is safe to remove ehtray.exe from Startup ? Can somebody please tell me how can I do the same? Many thanks.
