I'm using a Sony Vaio running XP home edition SP2 and all updates, 2 Gig processor and 1 Gig of RAM. Saturday, 4/12, I purchased MyDVD10 Premier from Roxio, downloaded, installed (no issues on install), did a reboot checked for updates and used the program with zero issues.
When I am done using my computer I power it down and secure power to it. The next time I started my computer it took 20-30 min to boot (usually takes less than 4).Additionally, the C drive is being continually accessed (scanned?) during the boot process.
I rebooted in safe mode, no problems, performed virus checks and spyware checks using Norton Online check, Trend micro Housecall (online), spybot search and destroy and ZoneAlarm. No issues were found.
Rebooting the machine in normal mode causes the same excess boot time.
Desktop Shows, Icons Show, Startup items take forever and accessing anything is impossible
until complete boot and the C drive is continually accessing
Tried disconnecting Internet access (Verizon Fios) (pulled cable from card) and the machine boots normally.
Reconnecting the internet cable has the problem return.
Tonight I uninstalled MyDVD10 Premier and the problem has not returned.
Does anyone have an idea as to what process or command within MyDVD10 is causing this issue?
Is Roxio aware of it? I'm willing to work with Roxio to try and resolve the issue.
Right now I've resolved to installing MyDVD10 when I wish to use it and then uninstalling it when I'm done. I Honestly don't think that will last long before I start to look for a different program.
