Accidently installed Easy CD & DVD 6 on Windows Vista Crashed

Recommended Posts

You could try booting in safe mode (if Vista supports that) and remove ECD6 - you may have to manually edit the registry for any Roxio entries and remove them

 

Do NOT remove any Sonic ones - ECD6 pre-dates Sonic's acquisition and, as they are responsible for the Packet Writing s/w in Vista, you could really mess things up

 

All in all - either a restore to pre-installation or (worst case scenario) a re-install of Vista

Likewise, doesn't Vista have a Restore point set so you can take it back to condition dated before you installed it?

 

In XP it is referred to as 'Rollback'.

Probably won't restart in safe mode. I had the same problem. All is not lost though. There is a way to restore your pc. You need the Windows Vista Program Disc. Put it in your rom drive and restart your pc. After the Bios screen comes up you will see a screen that says press any key to boot from cd/dvd. It will have a black screen then that comes up saying its loading windows files. Finally it will come up on the language screen. Pick your language. Then the install screen will come up. Go to the bottom left and it should have repair windows. Click on that. It will scan for your current windows installation. Click next. If it comes up that it can't repair your windows, it will bring up a screen stating that with an option at the bottom to view other option for restore. This will bring up a window with the first option being system repair. Go to second option for System Restore. This will go into your System Restore panel. Choose a point right before install of Roxio 6. It will go through restoring to this time. At reboot, it will again prompt to boot from cd/dvd. DO NOT PRESS A KEY. Let it boot normally. Your old settings and windows should be restored at this point.
