Using the About Windows Media Center Menu
Selecting Tasks Settings General About Windows Media Center provides you
with critical information concerning Windows Media Center. Within this section,
you can view the software version of the application by selecting the Software Ver-
sion button. The About Windows Media Center menu also allows you to view the
terms of service when using the program. Finally, you can select Data Provider Cred-
its to open a listing of the content providers for media information, allowing you to
see where Windows Media Center retrieves its online content.
Viewing Privacy Information in Windows Media Center
Selecting Tasks Settings General Privacy allows you to view the online Win-
dows Media Center privacy statement, privacy settings, and customer experience set-
tings. Clicking on the Online Windows Media Center Privacy Statement opens a
window showing you the updated privacy available from Microsoft’s web site. To
view the specific content from your browser, go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/
?LinkId=41386.
From the Privacy Settings option, you can change the Guide and Most Viewed set-
tings available in Windows Media Center. The Guide selection allows you to turn on
or off the ability for Windows Media Center to send anonymous information to
Microsoft, which helps Microsoft improve the quality and accuracy of the services
available within Windows Media Center. The Most Viewed selection turns on or off
the favorites filter in the Windows Media Center guide. Once you have made your
selections, click or select the Save button to update your local profile.
The Customer Experience Settings option lets you select whether you want to send
anonymous usage and reliability information to Microsoft. When you experience an
error within the program, you are asked whether to send a report to Microsoft, which
helps Microsoft determine specific problems with the product and its interaction with
additional programs. If you want to send this information to Microsoft, leave the
checkbox selected, as it is a default setting within Windows Media Center. After you
have completed your selection, click or select the Save button to save your preferences.
Using Windows Media Center Setup

Windows Media Center, you can use these menu options to add new hardware or
change the configuration settings.
