      i had the same problem, but this worked for me.

      1. close wmc
      2. open task manager, and stop/end any processes associated with wmc. These are normally named starting with eh..ehrecvr.exe, ehsched.exe, ehshell.exe, ehtray.exe. I think one of them may well automatically start again, but don't worry too much if it does.
      3. open explorer (or whatever it's called nowadays) and head of to c:\windows\ehome.
      4. delete everything in that folder.
      5. start wmc again and run the setup. It should then pull down the icon. However, i would advise running the tv setup first before heading off looking for the icon. I think when i did this, it wasn't there the 1st time..but was after i ran the tv signal setup (post wmc setup).

      i hope this helps.

      It popped up for me straight up for me after a new install of Windows 7!

      Perhaps that fact that the PC didn't have a TV card for DTT left it with this as the only TV source!

      strange....did it manage to delete everything in ehome...all folders/subfolders/files etc?
      When you restarted wmc for the first time after deletion, did it go to the setup screen 'express' or 'custom'...as if you had run it for the very first time.

      ah...that's probably why this hasn't worked then.
      what message did you get when you tried to delete?
