Get Roxio off the PC. The thing will not go.

Roxio 9 is on the machine in fact I think it's glued to it.

Is there a method to force it go to. Add remove programs in control panel doesn't do it.

did you run as administrator cos i got rid of it thru add remove programs

  lisa02 19:06 24 Jan 08

Yes. It just stopped responding and I had to restart the computer.

When it booted back up I couldn't get into Control Panel. I have since restored back to before I attempted to remove it.

To be honest I gave up trying to do the same.

I read when trying to find an answer to it that the issue was something to do with Dells in particular where the DVD drive was "locked" into using the software. I decided it was not worth the candle to struggle on.

I've just started removing the programs via ccleaner. It seem successfully too.

I hope my dvd drives don't get disabled.

if you use ccleaner you could try uninstalling from there

sorry i was typing i never saw your last post

  lisa02 19:21 24 Jan 08

thanks for your time.

Roxio has to be the buggiest piece of software I have used. I hope this helps others get rid of it.

I've downloaded the 15 day unrestricted free trial of Nero 8 til I buy a full copy.

anskyber - my dvd drives are still there. I'll post back whe I've used nero 8 on them.

  User-1229748 19:27 24 Jan 08

no problem

  lisa02 22:06 24 Jan 08

Well Nero trial wouldn't install.

I'm at a loss with this thing today.

Ouch my head.

Strange this, I had no problems, except for the usual driver blocked message.

I had the full version of Roxio 9, so I removed that which came with the pc and installed the full.

After doing the Drag to Disc replace again all has been fine.

Lisa02, is it a UAC problem with the install or something else?
