Re: Unwanted programs starts with DXLab

Jim N7US

I started with uninstall from Control Panel.  I have searched for Roxio, Sonic, and Adaptec files and have deleted them, as well as going through the registry and using a registry cleaner.


I followed documentation from Dell, since Roxio came on this Dell computer in 2010, for uninstalling it, but I still have the problem.


The problem started a couple of months ago.  I never use Roxio.


I’ve used Malwarebytes to no avail too.


I didn’t find a good contact for Microsoft Support.


Since the problem isn’t with DXLab, maybe anyone with suggestions can email Larry (lknain@...)  and me directly rather than on the reflector.  Thanks.

I have one of those issues as well that I haven't chased down. One of my laptops was about to die so I migrated several apps from the laptop to a desktop. DXLab wasn't supposed to be migrated but the migration tool did it anyway. Now when I start DXLab on the desktop it tries to start a Windows media app. The desktop is not the shack computer so I haven't done anything about it yet and I don't often run DXLab on the desktop. The migration tool folks have not responded. But it is interesting that the original post and my situation both involve media apps.

I understand this isn’t a DXLab problem but an unwanted program, Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burning, starts each time a DXLab module starts.


I’ve uninstalled it but it still persists. 


>>>Then the Roxio application has not been uninstalled.


Does this mean I have a registry problem?
