Completely Uninstall Roxio Creator 2009roxio creator 2009 uninstall

I used Windows' uninstall program twice, but it didn't get rid of Roxio. I did a SEARCH for all instances of Roxio in the file or folder name, and then deleted them. I couldn't get rid of one dll file in a Roxio folder; it was protected somehow. Renaming it didn't help. I finally moved it to the recycle bin and emptied the recycle bin; that did it.
I ran msconfig and unchecked all Roxio references in the services and startup tabs, and restarted my computer.
I downloaded C2009_UninstallerXP.zip and ran it, but it said that Roxio was not found, so it could not uninstall it.
I still get the "Please wait while Windows configures Roxio Creator 2009" window when I (1) right click any folder -- even an empty folder (2) access an audio or video file.
I have a Compaq Presario desktop PC running Windows XP service pack 3.
What is causing these aggravating messages about Roxio?
How can I get rid of them?

A number of the gurus here recommend you use the REVO UNINSTALLER [do an Internet search for it] in "moderate" mode to completely uninstall the Roxio suite.
This uninstaller has a free trial version, and seems to be very efficient.
