Yeah, definitely Norton issues.

Go Start>Run (Start Search in Vista), type in:
msconfig
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).

Click on Startup tab.
Click Disable all

Click Services tab.
Put checkmark in Hide all Microsoft services
Click Disable all.

Click OK.
Restart computer in Normal Mode.

NOTE. If you use different firewall, than Windows firewall, turn Windows firewall on, just for this test, since your regular firewall won't be running.
If you use Windows firewall, you're fine.

Try burning again, using CDBurnerXP.

OK a little progress. I was able to successfully burn a CD (Hooray!) with the Pop-Up message System Configuration Utility open. Do I now select Normal Start-Up or Launch System Restore? If this proves this to be a Norton issue how do I address this?

Click on the little box at the bottom of the popup that says do not show or start
This will stop the system configuration popup from happening on startup
If it is Norton there are several free AV's available which are just as good and less of resource hogs.

So I should uninstall Norton Anti-Virus? What about Norton Internet Security? What free AV software would you suggest I install?

I myself use Avast.

Please download Avast from my signature below. Please make sure you do the registration as it is good for a year or more. When it is due simply just reregister it.
Avast in my opinion is better because:

It's FREE to the Home User
It Updates it's Definitions daily
You can scan Individual Files, Folders and Drives
No buying new versions every year

Internet Security I assume you are speaking of a Firewall or of something else?
As far as soemthing that will do more then a firewall Some of the members use Zone Alarm

A rule of thumb to follow is no more then one of each of the following:

Anti-virus
Anti-malware
Anti-spyware
Firewall

Here is where I am at this time. I have installed Avast and done a scan - no viruses found. I opened Norton Internet Security and currently have Anti-Spyware, E-Mail Message Scan, Identy Safe, Anti-Phishing, and Intrusion Protection - "On". I have turned "Off" Norton Anti-Virus, Smart Firewall and Advanced Protection.

I then tried to burn a disc using Windows Media Player and got the all too familiar "Blue Screen" memory dump when the CD was inserted into the CD burner. I rebooted and burned a CD using CDWriter XP. The burn was successful and I could play the new CD on my computer, however, when placed in my car player I got an "Error" message. I believe the issue may be that the CD was burned with a .cda extension. How would I change that to be an appropriate format for my car player?

Also what do I need to do to be able to record using Windows Media Player?

Should I leave the msconfig setting for Startup and Services as Disable All?

Seems we are making some progress! Thanks!

Regular cd players use the CDA extension so there is another issue.
Did Cdwriter XP write a leadin and leadout when finished burning your track compilation or do you know?

What error message are you seeing when trying to play in your car stereo?

CDBurnerXP did not write a Lead In butdid write a Lead out. When CD is inserted into car player it appears to read the CD for 20-30 seconds and ejects the CD with the message "ERR".

Op is trying to make a CDA disk.
I believe the issue is no lead in to tell cd player there are files on the disk.
What do you think Hawklord?
