EMC 8 and Max Secure Registry Cleaner



Here is one for you gurus.

I installed EMC 8 and the 8.05 update, created some DVD's from home movies but not without some menu problems. Which I solved by making them all the same size with soace bars.


But here is the big one: All of a sudden the EMC 8 main program would not load. It started an install routine of the audio program (which I don't remember the exact name) and it wanted the program disc to be inserted but it could not find what it was looking for. Then I could not get out of it by canceling. I had to end task.

Now, I thought this was strange that the program would not load but I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of the complete program and the update 8.05. And low and behold the icon worked again. So I thought of all the things that may have changed. Aha! registry cleaners!

I did a registry clean with Registry Mechanic and the Roxio main still worked. Then I did a registry clean with Max Secure and walla! the Roxio Main did the same thing. So I found the Roxio registry entries that Max Secure deleted and restored them. Walla! the Roxio Main started correctly. Now why would a registry cleaner do this? I sent an export and note to Max Secure but you know how those things work!

So any of you running Max Secure beware! I set Max Secure to ignore those registry entries. Now how is a regular user going to know what registry entries can be deleted safely? The entry about Audio CD Task was th culprit but I restored all of them.

The Registry entries I found are here:







Hope this helps someone else. You Gurus can work on it.

I remember something similar happening years back with an older version of Norton SystemWorks - that one button cleanup was deleting some files from the label creator part of the program.


You'd think that software cleanup authors would learn to check what their stuff actually does :)
