I uninstalled it...used a clean install after using Windows Install Clean Up Utility and manually going through the register to rid it of any lingering files for Roxio or Sonic. The install went fine...and even let me register (again!). However, I had the same problem with the outline of the main page and the double entry in the applications tab of task manager. It's almost like it's trying to load it twice at the same time or something....beats me! I DID notice one thing, which may be "normal" and I just never paid attention to it before. When I was running setup...it would be running the msiexec.exe in the process tab (which I guess is Microsoft Installer) but I noticed that it was running it twice....one using the "USER" as System and one using my "USERNAME". They kept switching back and forth between the two processes. Don't know if that's normal or not...but it seemed kinda weird to ME.
Anyway...can someone help me figure this one out please??? Thanks in advance for any and all help you can give me.
