ROXIO installs blew away NTLDR twice on my WIN XP Pro system. Once, during one of the many install atepmpts, I did try and reboot, the NTLDR file was blown away and I had to take ot to my local computer shop to get through the boot sequesnce. That $100 exercise didn't cure me though, and a few days later I tried loading EMC10 again, this time disabling antivirus, spyware and firewalls before the attempt. Well, it still blew NTLDR away again. Another $100 trip to the shop. However on this load, EMC did get through the install and actually said finish. That looked good, right ? WRONG !!
The program and modules all actrually run appropriately now (fingers crossed), it seems. But my SPyBot S&D sure has a problem with. EMC 10 hs inserted itself in my System Variables PATH, and the the spyware is balky at best. ROXIO's answer, paraphrasing, "we're trying to fix this. don't let your spyware alter ROXIO registry entries. Reload EMC 10."
You've got to be kidding. Did I not tell you that I spent over two hundred dollars fixing NTLDR problems during installs ? Why on earth would I want to try loading it again ???
I've looked in my Control Panel and have no icon for "Software Updates" per this pinned post response;
lease see the following article for details http://kb.roxio.com/content/kb/General%20I...N?set-locale=en
Note: The article includes these important instructions at the end. We still recommend reading the entire article though.
Important: After installing Easy Media Creator 10, it is recommended to run software manager for any available updates to prevent the issue such as "NTLDR is missing" from re-occurring.
a. Install Easy Media Creator 10.
b. When prompted to restart your computer, click “No”.
c. Go to Control Panel and then double click on Software Update.
Note: You may need to click “Switch to Classic View” to find Software Update.
d. Place a checkmark on “Roxio Easy Media Creator 10.0 Update” and click Install.
e. Restart your computer after the patch installation is completed
I do run Classic View. Where else might this Software Updates applet be found ?
