    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.

    It's the same with Vista. Are you running 64-bit?
