High CPU usage during music plaing in Windows Media Center


I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.Whenever I try to play music within media center I find there is a huge memory usage and media center crashes from time to time.

Why it’s happening:-

Ehshell.exe process continually creates GDI+ bitmap objects very quickly this causes Windows to run out of virtual memory address space as a result  Ehshell.exe process crashes.


Fortunately  a supported hotfix is available from Microsoft to resolve the issue.

Download and install the hotfix from here:-
