Hi indyhoops, and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
Registry cleaners have a poor reputation with most of us here, they can do more harm than the marginal good that you can get from them.
You might try doing a System Restore to see if it will correct what the registry cleaner did.
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.
When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.
The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.
Another thing to try would be to replace the drivers for the DVD, this can be done via Device Manager. Start> My Computer> Manage> Device Manager. Scroll down the list to DVD/CD drives, click on the + to the left of it to expand it, click on the Driver tab and uninstall the driver. When you reboot, windows will look for native drivers to replace those. This is a plug and play device, so that should work.
That's a start, let us know how it goes.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
