    Try:

    1. Click on START button, the click on RUN.

    2. Enter REGEDIT and press Enter.

    3. When REGEDIT starts, open up the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/
    {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

    4. After clicking on {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} you should see two settings on the right-hand side:
    "Upperfilters"
    "Lowerfilters"
    Click on each of them, press DELETE and click YES.

    Or you can download this reg file to do the same thing. Or CDGone Variant.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was a little hesitant to suggest checking those since presumably the replacer would have known what they were doing (and tested to be sure afterward).:D
