Disable Vista's Media Center(Ultimate or Home Premium only)

Open a command prompt with admin rights(if you UAC turned on, just type cmd into the search bar of the start menu and hit Ctrl-Shift-Enter)

Type:
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaCenter /v MediaCenter /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

To re-enable it(not likely to happen ;-))
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaCenter /v MediaCenter /f
