Finally took the plunge and got it at a good price from Amazon with a $20 rebate so net cost $50. Not bad at all.
Running Windows Vista Home Premium on a 3 month old system, and the installation went ok albeit lengthy. I guess for the amount of stuff in the suite it is to be expected.
After install and reboot, ny HD started thrashing around and working like beehive. Of course the system became very sluggish and programs slow to open etc. I tried tracking down the reason from task manager and it seems and found some roxio service running at 20-25% CPU usage. I cant recall the file name.
I also see a few roxio items in startup from msconfig. I dont know what each does for now and I cant find anything in the program options that shows start up options so I can decided what to run or not run.
So my question is where would I go to find such information in the Roxio suite? The usual options has nothing like that
Hope I explained correctly
