    Good alternative to Creator NXT 8?

    It has nothing to do with "blaming" Creator NXT 8. It is simply a fact that some of its drivers conflicted with Core Isolation/Memory Integrity. When installed, I could not enable Memory Integrity. When Creator was totally removed, I could. So it is a simple fact that there was a conflict with the drivers. This is not a guess or assumption, but a fact. I have been around computers for a very long time, starting with a Commodore 64 in the 1970s, moving up to a 286, and further from there. While I do not consider myself a computer expert by any means, I am far from a novice. Being as that I am in my 60s now, there's a good chance (but no certainty) that I've been using computers longer than you have. Sure, older computers did not have things like Core Isolation/Memory Integrity. So what? Are you suggesting that as new, better security features become available that I should simply ignore them? Sorry, but I am not that naive or stupid, regardless of what you might think. Back in the "old days" when things like Core Isolation/Memory Integrity did not exist, the threats out there from hackers, malware, etc were also not nearly as bad as they are now. Unless you've been living under a rock, you are fully aware that in recent years these threats have gotten MUCH worse and much more sophisticated. So if your preference is to not use any and all security precautions available to you on your PC, then you are of course perfectly within your rights to do so. Maybe you have less to protect than I do. Whatever. But you have no right to criticize or look down on others that choose differently from you. It is obvious at this point that you do not agree with the idea of "agreeing to disagree", so it's of no use to continue this discussion. If you choose to rant some more, by all means do so. Maybe you're just a troll. No idea. Just don't expect any more responses from me.

    Thank you for your interest. It is easy to see that you hate Core Isolation/Memory Integrity. I can assure you that if/when problems arise due to Core Isolation/Memory Integrity I will definitely reassess the situation. Let's be honest here. If Microsoft did not think that this feature/option offered concrete benefits, it would not include it in Windows. Most online articles DO recommend having it turned on unless, as you say, it causes problems. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/all/shall-i-turn-on-memory-integrity/7b3db5b5-9f7e-46db-85a8-f3d04f7e4d52 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/core-isolation-e30ed737-17d8-42f3-a2a9-87521df09b78 So again, if at some point I find that it is indeed causing problems, I may indeed turn it off. Until such time though, I will leave it on and search for another multimedia app that will work with it. Thanks again for your input.

    As I said, as of right now it is working perfectly. It's not interfering or causing any problems whatsoever.

    But that's the point. Memory Integrity is NOT causing ANY problems with the daily operation of my computer. It is now running perfectly with it enabled. It is/was Creator NXT 8 that is/was causing problems with Memory Integrity. I used Creator NXT 8 on occasion, not every day. I use Windows security apps/options daily.

    Yes, it is Windows 10 telling me that specific Roxio drivers are conflicting with enabling Core Isolation/Memory Integrity. And by the very fact that once Creator is totally deleted I am finally able to enable it means that the message Windows was giving me is correct. The level of security a person wants to have on their personal computer is entirely a matter of choice. For me, I want as much protection as possible, which is one reason I leave User Account Control turned on. Is it a hassle at times? Sure. But a VERY minor hassle for me. So to each their own. I'm sure I can find online articles recommending having Core Isolation/Memory Integrity turned on, just as much as I might some that say it isn't necessary.

    I can only turn it on by totally deleting Creator (including registry entries, etc). So that would mean installing/deleting/reinstalling Creator every time I want to use it, which would be a huge pain. And if the entire point of Memory Integrity is additional security, I do not want to run the risk of compromising that security by trying to reinstall Creator while it's enabled.

    That's for the article. But all things considered, I'd prefer to keep memory isolation on, as the only incompatibility thus far is with Creator NXT 8, which I do not use a lot. I'd rather simply get another multimedia editing suite that does not have the incompatibily issues.

    Good alternative to Creator NXT 8?

    Actually my post wasn't meant as a simple rant. I really WOULD appreciate suggestions on good alternatives to Creator NXT 8. I'd much prefer to keep Creator, but I obviously can't if it conflicts with some Windows security options I want enabled on my PC. I've seen similar suites from Nero, CyberLink, etc, but I have no idea how they might stack up against Creator NXT 8 in terms of capabilities. I don't think that other Corel products would work though, as some of the incompatible Creator NXT 8 drivers are actually identified as Corel.
  9. Can anyone give me some good alternatives to Roxio Creator NXT 8? I have been having problems enabling Core Isolation/Memory Integrity in Windows 10 on my desktop. It appears that some Creator NXT 8 drivers are incompatible (at least on this PC). These drivers are there even if I do a minimum installation without any of the add-on software options. Only if I totally delete Creator NXT 8 (including registry items, etc) can my system enable Core Isolation/Memory Integrity. I had initially contacted Microsoft tech support to try to fix this, but as the drivers belong to Roxio, they directed me there. So far though, Roxio tech support has been useless, even with the higher levels of tech support. The last communication from them told me to contact Microsoft. So if anyone knows of another good multimedia editing suite, I would be VERY grateful to hear about it!
  10. Understood. Thank you though for responding!
  11. I have been trying to enable Core Isolation/Memory Integrity in Windows 10, but keep getting told that is cannot be enabled due to incompatibilities with the following drivers, which I think may have been installed with Creator: emBDA64A.sys emOEM64A.sys emDevice64.sys emFilter64.sys emScan64.sys If these are indeed drivers from Roxio, do I need them? Can I install newer versions? How can I fix this?
  12. Ok...so it might not have any at all to do with how graphic-intensive EMC might or might not be. Guess I'll just have to live with it! Thank to all of you for the education!
  13. Like I said, I'll take all of your words for it. All I'm saying though is that EMC is the ONLY program on my system right now that causes Vista to go into basic mode. Not Adobe Photoshop. Not any of my very graphic-intensive games. Not anything else. Only EMC. Nothing else needs to be running. I try to keep my startup apps to a bare minimum to preserve resources. But as soon as EMC starts up, or the Roxio file monitoring app starts up when I boot up my system, Vista goes into basic mode and stays there until I quip these programs. So it IS just EMC that is doing this.
  14. Okay, I'll take your word for it. It just seems odd to me that EMC9 would use so much more of the CPU and GPU, be so much more graphics intensive, than any of my extremely graphics intensive games or Adobe Photoshop, or anything else like that. None of these other graphics intensive apps causes my Vista to go into basic mode. I could perhaps see it if I was using EMC9 to edit some graphics, DVDs, etc, but I'm not. Just seems a bit strange to me. I never realized that EMC was such a resource hog!
  15. Thanks to everyone for the info regarding Easy Media Creator 9 not seeing some of my music files! Now, getting back to the first question....does anyone know why Easy Media Creator 9 and the other included Roxio apps are forcing my Vista Premium to go into basic mode?
