XP Pro SP3: I disabled the Media Center services Extender & Receiver & Scheduler and the process ehtray.exe. All are listed as "user choice". After having done that, process ehmsas.exe disappeared from the task list. No ill effects, so I guess it's not necessary.

Windows Media Center file

It is part of the Microsoft's Operating Systems. Generally of size 40kb - 46kb depending on the OS. Do not delete it unless detected as a harmful file by anti-virus(very less chance of this happening)

Seems to run by itself for no apparent reason when computer is idle.

Search for MceRepair if Media Center isn't working properly. It re-registers the DLLs and (I believe) starts the Windows services on which WMC relies.

I never seen in running in my programs till i got a virus, even after i reinstalled a new OS and what so.
  Charles Roach  
I stopped the process, and no it didnt cause my computer to crash, nor did it slow it down. I didnt notice it running in the processes before until just recently, so I was skeptical as to what it is and how come it appeared all of a sudden.

Runs on Vista even if all WMC services are disabled
