I dont use any registry cleaners. I think its fair to just attribute this to buggy software by Roxio. This board is riddled with the issue.
I did try a deinstall/reinstall last night with no help, So yes my next step is to do a clean install. Either that or visit Best Buy for another product. As I have said I have used the product for a long time and I'm just tired of all the bugs, The fact you never see updates for there products, only new releases troubles me. I'm not flaming here only stating fact. Even though I know that no software provider is free of bugs it may be time to seek another solution. I have a huge amount of editing to do and this is not what I needed.
But thanks for your post James! I know you have been here a long time as well. Keep up the good work helping others.
