    XBOX 360 and Windows Media Center

    Hi,

    recently i was checking out the media center settings on my xbox360, and out of curiostiy i started the configuration of windows media center. But i never completed it, becaus i do not have a media center. Now, everytime i turn my xbox360 on, the first thing
    he askes me is to complete the media center configuration.

    How do i turn this off? Couldnt find anything about it on the internet of in the settings pane of my xbox360.

    :)
