Unwanted Processes

Question

I've been using EZ CD Creator since version 4 and have always considered it to be the best CD/DVD burning software on the market.

 

When you guys started bundling other apps like photo authoring, video players, sound editors and such, I previously chose NOT to include these during the installation process. I have other programs for those processes such as Adobe PhotoShop and Sony Vegas.

 

I just purchased and installed Roxio Creator 2012. Unless I missed it, I was not given an option NOT to install all the unwanted applications. Now that it's installed, I've found Roxio Burn.exe and RoxioBurn Launcher.exe in my processes along with several new desktop icons and a dozen Roxio applications in my program list.

 

As much as I like your CD/DVD burning software, I don't like this.

 

What I would really like is an option to ONLY install your CD/DVD burning software, and I'd like it if that software only created processes WHILE I'm burning a disk and not every time I turn on the machine. Since I only burn CD/DVD's once every few months, it's not a good use of system resources to have roxio applications running in the background.

 

Please consider this with future versions of your software.

 

Thanks,

Gary, I agree with you and like to control what gets installed on my system. But, it's not possible in this version. You can stop those programs from running if you uncheck them in your startup tab. That's about all that you can do.

Suites may not be for everyone but there are many who do like to have one program do all and it's just not possible to please everyone. Maybe future versions will go back to allowing controlled program installs in some way.

I'm with Gary. One size doesn't fit all, when these suites get so huge.

 

I like to install only the apps I want, and would appreciate the choice in future versions.

The built in CD/DVD burning software that is now in Vista and W7 is far superior than what was in the earlier versions of Windows. Have you considered that?

 

At one time Roxio's burning software was the burning engine in Windows; I don't know if it still is.

 

I agree with your about the intertwined applications in Creator. I found that the free "Soluto" software was very valuable in limiting what runs at boot. It specifies what should not run at start up, what you might want to change, and what you can't (should not) change. You can do the same thing in the Start Tab in MSCONFIG.

 

If you bought Creator 2012 from the Roxio online store, you have 30 days to retrun it and get a refund should you not like it.

 

If you have upgraded to W7 and still only want to burn CD and DVD's, then consider this (link)
