Should i uninstall other burning programs on my computer?

I just purchased roxio creator 2009. I have windows xp. When i got the computer it came with sonic digital media-that was what i used for copying cds and also with muvee auto producer 4.0. Should I uninstall both of those programs? Sonic also has mydvd plus in it. I attempted to get updates from sonic once and my system crashed, so i never tried again. I only have very outdated programs for both right now. Thanks

Hi dbarbosa63
I would suggest uninstalling the other software. I have had more than enough instances ehare roxio and other software had conflicts. Remeber to restart after unstallinf the other software to get the drivers they may have used out of the system before installing the roxio.

Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

Hi josephc_agni,

You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 8 if it is set as not removable. This occurs if you install Internet Explorer 8 before you install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. If this scenario applies to you, then you must uninstall SP3 before you can uninstall Internet Explorer 8.

  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  4. In the list of currently installed programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 8, and then click Remove.

    NOTE: If Windows Internet Explorer 8 does not appear in the list of installed updates, try the alternative step given below.
  5. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
ALTERNATIVE STEP:

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Carefully select and then copy the following command: %windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type Cmd.exe, and then press ENTER.
  4. Right-click inside the Cmd.exe window, and then click Paste to paste the command that you copied in step 1.
  5. Press ENTER to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.

Compatable software


Normally what you actually get along with the hardware is an oem licensed software. So if what you have is for xp then i regret to inform you that you will be needing a different software that you may need to purchase. Now, if you are open for a different software aside from roxio, what you could do is go to filehippo.com and search for cdburner xp pro which is compatible with vista.

McAfee not updating


Some files might have been corrupted somehow.

As per the error, you need to uninstall Mcafee and then reboot the computer. Then once your windows boots back, re-install Mcafee from the CD you purchased. That should solve any corruption problems.

Need help uninstalling?  Click Start -> Run, then type appwiz.cpl and press enter. You will get the Add/Remove programs. Go down and select Mcafee Total Security and click on remove and follow the simple instructions on the screen.

Chrome is not shiney and won't uninstall or install


You can remove Google Chrome like any other Windows program. Follow these steps: Click the Start menu on your computer taskbar. 
Select All Programs. 
Select Google Chrome. 
Select Uninstall Google Chrome.
Click the Yes button in the confirmation dialog box.

The uninstall process will begin and all your Google Chrome browser and application shortcuts will also be removed. 
Alternatively, you can double-click Add or Remove programs in Window XP's Control Panel or Programs and Features in Windows Vista, select Google Chrome in the list, and click the Remove button.


Google Chrome leaves behind your profile information in case you wish to reinstall in the future. To delete this information, go to \Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome in Windows XP or \Documents and Settings\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome in Windows Vista.
