I have an old disk for Roxio Inc.'s 'CD Recording Software'. It's pretty plain, in a paper case and everything...

Anyway, I installed it on my Toshiba Satellite A205-S5831 (although I doubt that will be any use to anyone). My laptop is running Vista.

After installing it, I started thinking 'Oh... well, I don't really need this', so I did the senseable thing and uninstalled it. The next reset I got this.

In fact, I got this twice in a row. Every restart. Now, I notoriously click 'please do not remove' to any driver or file that may be a shared file, so I figured, hey, these drivers must be running without the program... so I went in and reinstalled the program, restarted, and uninstalling it, clicking 'No to All' for the shared driver thing.

The first couple resets I was fine, but here the thing is again! I don't understand why it'd still be doing this.

I searched through RegEdit for 'Roxio' and 'CD Recording Software' and got no hits. I checked the MSConfig and can't find anything that would relate to the program. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

What version of Roxio do you have?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

What version of Roxio do you have?

Heh... I... ummm... don't exactly know. >.<

The disk says 'Easy CD Creator 4' so I assume the fourth.

See here.

Even though the link talks about Windows XP, you have pretty much the same issue. Your version on Roxio is an old version and is not compatible with Vista. You should go to the Roxio site and get a compatible version.

Better still, try some of the freeware burners. I like this one.

Have fun.
