ehSched.exe causing security warning at startup

Posted: 06-12-2008, 11:40 AM
Hi everybody,

a friend of mine has a problem which I can't seem to get fixed by myself. So
I'll try my luck here.

At startup she gets a security warning from ehsched.exe. She gets the
possibility to execute it or to cancel. Problem is that she gets this message
every time she turns on her computer. This is very annoying.

Anyone know how to fix this?

She never actually uses Windows Media Center (ehsched is the scheduler
service of media center, right?).

She's running on Windows Vista Home Premium. (Dutch)

Any help is appreciated!
