Dell Bundled question

Question

I have the same question which didn't seem to be answered. I just purchased(Jan 2007) a new Dell that came bundled with Roxio Creator MyDVD Combo LE and Roxio Creator MyDVD Combo Plus. I already own the application Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 Suite ----should I uninstall both bundled applications and then install my application?--or will those 2 Roxio programs serve the same functions?--Thank you

I'd uninstall the bundled apps - especially if there's nothing there you need and then re-install EMC8 on your new machine

 

However - a caveat - do NOT install WMP11 or IE7 on it as they will definitely break EMC8

hmmmm---that's unfortunate 'cause I enjoy IE7 and WMP11--is EMC9 compatable with both?

The jury is still out on that - there have been reports that they are causing problems

 

For a tabbed browser, personally I'd recommend Firefox (I use it myself along with a lot of others). WMP11 - not sure but I believe it's far tighter on DRM (I still use 9 and it does what I want - I'd have stuck to 8 but SP2 didn't let me have a choice) :)

Hi:Thanks for your suggestions--I just posted a similar question in the Easy Media Creator 9 forum--I know its redundant but I'm hoping if an uninstall is necessary I only have to use the Add/Remove Program in the control panel and not have to start sifting through the registry--a task I really don't think I'm well versed in---thanks again for your help--RPS
