When I purchased my PC last year, running XP Home, I tried to install older DirectCD cd-burning software (originally bundled with HP CD burner). It didn't work, and even though un-installed via Add / Remove, every time I reboot I get a little dialog box in the task bar that 'CD recording software' conflicts with the operating system and will be disabled. It doesn't really seem to hurt anything, but the dialog box annoys me.
How can I find and remove whatever is causing this?

Check to see if it is in your start-up.

Go to start...run...type in "msconfig" (without the quotes).

Go to the last tab and see if it's checked. If it is, uncheck it, reboot and see if it occurs again.

I looked in the startup and it's not listed there. Any other ideas?
