Windows service pack 3 is new.....roxio is old...u can try to download an updated and latest version of roxio that is compatible with windows xp SP3...
SP3 causes trouble with a lot of applications that worked fine on SP2...the best solution in most cases is to update the latest SP3 compatible version of the application.

How to Fix Registry Errors and Optimize PC?


The Windows registry is a database that stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. The registry also provides a window into the operation of the kernel, exposing runtime information such as performance counters and currently active hardware. Registry is so important that Microsoft suggest users not to edit it, or it will affect some functions of the system even cause system crash.


The most common registry error is DLL errors. If users frequently install and uninstall software, it can also leave some wrong uninstall entries in the registry. Some anti-virus or anti-spyware will false report and destroy DLL file of some soft ware. Without DLL file, the program will pop up some strange message and can’t run. Also, Control Panel can’t remove DLL files of soft ware. If these DLL files stay in registry, this will cause system errors. Day by day, registry is full of junk files and the computer will run slowly and...

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error when starting Roxio creator


Hi.

I have had several questions from users getting Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library errors when starting Roxio Creator 2010 and previous versions.
After the error prompt, the software will close down.

The problem is caused by a system error , and this sometimes is causedby Microsoft self installing update, that confuse settings of installedsoftware.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Libraries are part of the operativesystem, and this kind of Run time errors are commonly caused whenapplications try to access resources that are allocated for otherprocesses.

A new Roxio installation did not fix the problem, because the newinstallation will still keep the registry settings from oldinstallation.

If the problem started recently you can try the following:

Uninstall Roxio.
Do a System Restore to a date before the problem started.
Reinstall Roxio.

See: How to install System restore.

If that does not fix the problem you can also try the following;

Uninstall Roxio
Create a new user with administrator privileges
Log in using the New User account
Install Roxio again.

If the problem was bound to local user settings, this will fix the problem.

If the problem is still there, then the most efficient way to proceedis by doing a new Windows installation, using a Windows setup disk or arecovery disk for your computer.
Do a full backup of your data before reinstalling Windows.

See:Install, reinstall, or uninstall Windows

The solution does not apply only to Roxio, but can fix the same problem on different software.

Regards.

Ask my laptop is a victim of sofware confitieting frm soft ware genuine soft ware


you need to purchase legal software, uninstall the software you have and re-install the legal copy.. If this includes your operating system, then you should backup all the files you wish to keep BEFORE re-installing the operating system.. You can sometimes get around re-installing if the software will accept a legal product key but you will still have to purchase a full and legal copy to do this. Once done, you can contact microsoft for a release code..

Roxio Creator LE Dell Edition - Purchased and installed on February 17, 2008


Your program is making conflict to operating system, its trying to read some thing with invalid memory address. This may be due to curreption of your application.

If thats the case with you, reinstallation of the application will fix the problem.

Uninstall the Roxio from your system, then reboot to clear completely the components of the application. Then install.

Thanks
