I'm haunted by Roxio: CDR4_XP and CDRALW2K!

I've never installed Roxio directly but its come from somewhere. After CDR writing problems with Nero and other applications, it seems Roxio leftovers maybe my problem.

I've got 2 Nero tools: CleanPack (removes conflicting drivers) and Infotool (says which drivers are on the PC). I've done the following:

- I've followed the instructions in this link (but no reinstall!):
http://www.roxio.com...eez000182.jhtml

- I've run Nero's cleanpack and register cleanup tools.

- I've deleted the driver files

That should do it I guess., nope :) Nero's info tool shows that the drivers are running, even after rebooting. I clean them with Nero's cleaning tool but they reappear straight away.

:tazz: Can anyone help?

They are probably in your system restore, so you will need to turn off system restore before removing them. However what makes them run is entries in the registry, so use Regedit and check for any roxio entries in the registry and remove them. Be very carefull in the registry.

Hi Tyger,

I don't think I have a real-time system restore setup. If I'm doing some serious changes, I have to make a restore point so I can go back to it.

I've been through the whole registry. There are no Adaptec or Roxio entries. There were some there, I deleted them (after taking a registry backup), rebooted and the drivers were still there.

I've just checked the registry again. No entries remain.

If you're on XP or ME you have system restore unless you've disabled it. Go to Programs>Accessories>System tools>System restore. It automatically creates restore points and if you choose the restore back function you will find them.

hi,
May be you can try this small uninstall utility from Roxio site it self
http://www.roxio.com...ee6000061.jhtml
http://softwareupdat...ols/roxizap.exe
follow the instructions and use the roxio zap utility to get rid off roxio programs.
post if it worked.

Thanks Stallion, I thought I'd posted in the wrong place (sorry :tazz: ) , so I asked here. Anyhow, my problem might be solved. See:

I'm not sure if the tool helped, but it certainly will if I get a similar problem in the future :)
