    All i can tell you is that Roxio is a terrible program. You might not be having and problems now, but soon if you have Roxio and another dvd burner program on your commputer(ex.Nero) then your goin to run into a lot of problems.

    Gamename-

    I agree with Pna352 that Roxio is a very intrusive program when it comes to other software. If you have had no previous problems using Decrypter/Shrink and Nero, you are one of the lucky ones. As far as future problems go, you may run into problems, but that has yet to be seen. Until you do, you may want to leave well enough alone. However, uninstalling Roxio is probably a good idea, but in reading other threads concerning the uninstallation of it, I hear that it still keeps files in your registry, amongst other places. You may want to do a search for threads related to the uninstallation. I wish you the best of luck friend!

    I am guaranteed there are still Roxio files on your computer, and i agree with XeroRspct...TAKE ROXIO OFF YOUR COMPUTER... the easiest way is to open control panel, remove programs, and delete Roxio...Now it will still ahve regesrtry files so use this link to fully take them off :
