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.

May be that you have downloaded the software from a non genuine site. Go to the following link and re-download the software.
The software is not meant for Windows 98 operating system. If you have this operating system then you have to consult the support system in HP site.

In Roxio Creator 2010 slideshow won't open..complaining " Certificate file is missing or has been corrupted". Reinstaling does not help


Check that the date on your computer is correct. Certificates are checked on an online microsoft database. If your computer has date Jan.2001, you get the certificate error.

If that was not the problem, then try the following:

Go to Control pane, switch it to classic view.
Open Control Panel ->Appearance and Personalization->Folder Options->View , then click on "Show Hidden files and folders" and Apply or OK
Go to : c:\Program Data
Delete folder called Roxio & Sonic
Try starting Roxio Creator.

If still no luck , do a system restore to a date that is one or two days before you tried to install Roxio.
After system restore, log in from account with administrator privileges, and reinstall Roxio.
When you reinstall Roxio, instead of double clicking on installer file, try clicking right mouse button on setup file and choose "Run as Administrator" from dropdown menu.
Allow all requests to allow system changes when asked.
