    Running XP Pro. Made a boo-boo a while back when installing the software that came with my Plextor CD-RW (kinda old).

    Anyway, the Adaptic software, now owned by Roxio, attempted to load "DirectCD" drivers, which XP won't allow, and it gives me an error message on the taskbar every time it boots up. No biggie, as the error message goes away when I click on it, but does anyone know how to remove the offending "DirectCD" call?

    Check out the updates on their site. There was a MAJOR issue with DirectCD...

    I ran into this issue when I had Win2000 and it was so bad that my computers wouldn't even boot after installing.

    Roxio came out with an update that you had to run BEFORE rebooting the computer. It basically removed DirectCD from the system because of some major conflict with Windows2000 and later.

    EDIT: My mistake, I was thinking of "Take Two" - DirectCD should be ok if you update the software. There are updates available on Roxio's site.
