I'm never 100% sure but I've tested the video card, memory, hard drive, cpu, heatsink, fan, and everything. The only thing I have yet to test is power supply but it's brand new.

I have. I've reinstalled it a few times. I changed the partition, made new partitions, deleted it, reformatted, started from scratch and still same thing.....

So you think that i'm getting a "virus" by installing xp mce while on the network? I've actually installed it both ways, on and off the internet. Still no luck.
Here's what I bought. I didn't buy it from here, but these are pretty much the specs.
I bought it as a barebone pc and i added all the stuff to it. I used the Viewsonic recovery cd's to install XP media center on it. Do you think this could be a problem? I have a regular copy of xp home edition, but I want to make use of all the built in features that the motherboard has, not to mention use it as a legit multimedia pc. Any help is appreciated.....
