My XP-Pro is fully up to date (as of yesterday, 04/30/06). All of my s/w is as up to date as can be, including upgraded MS Installer (after the problem began, as suggested for another problem in your forum.)
I uninstalled (YourUninstaller2006) Roxio and deleted any remaining files and/or folders after each attempt to re-install (including the Start Menu.) I have completely cleaned all registry entries for everything Roxio, disconnected from the internet, knocked down AdWatch, Norton and AVG, rebooted several times (following each attempt to re-load EMC-8), and I am now at a loss as to what to do.
The registry s/w I've used are JV16, RegCleaner, EasyCleaner, RegScrub and RegOptimizer.
(The reason for the RE-install is because I rebuilt my system to create several partitions on two hard drives and wanted a clean start. I'm following the "plan" of Fred Langa (langalist.com) and related items from MS and two other Guru's. All other s/w has re-installed just fine. Roxio is the last one I was re-installing. I still have 1.97 Gb available on my C:\ drive.)
I would certainly appreciate any help (Roxanne had no clue, by the way.)
