Easy Cd5 & Dvd Creator-avg Antivirus Install


mySaguaro

Recommended Posts

I have Easy CD 5 & DVD Creator installed on my Windows XP notebook.

I just uninstalled my Avast antvirus and tried to install AVG instead ,

but a box comes up saying :

Roxio Easy CD 5 & DVD Creator

Which contains a bug that (among others) can cause problems with AVG 8.0

And to update software.

Where do I get the update ?

There are Easy CD Creator 5, and Easy CD and DVD Creator 6.

 

Altho if memory serves me right, there was an OEM [Original Equipment Mfgr] ECDC 5 Version that included the ECD/DVDC 6 abilities for DVD Video. Since you say it came with your computer, it is probably this off-beat variation.

 

This is the patch -

BUT - I consider AVG a Virus or worse. A friend of mine thought all the "Viruses" it found were really Viruses, and wiped out half his software and his addess book for his entire church. It was possible to recover most of the software; he had to ask everyone for their (several hundred) email addresses to manually re-enter.

 

I'm currently using Avast!

Point is Lynn there was no version of 5 that supported DVD - the only legacy product which did anything out of the ordinary (had something the retail version didn't) was the one I mentioned

ALL Versions of ECDC 5 are capable of DVD Data discs. That was a major upgrade over ECDC 4.

 

DVD Video began with V.6, and I'm pretty sure I recall someone had an OEM that included DVD Video.

 

And we aren't talking about an "update" so much as the file AVG chokes on. I would refer to the knowledgebase article, but the KB search function has been "improved" from almost useless to totally useless :(

PS - ECDC 5 updates are still available on Roxio.co.uk

but who knows for how long?
