    I recently ran a registry cleaner program. No, I didn't make a backup of the registry first. Everything seemed fine until I tried to copy one file to another drive. I right clicked on the file, then dragged it to the new drive, then chose the copy command. Well, immediately, the installer program for Roxio Easy CD Creator launched. I clicked cancel. It launched again, I hit cancel. Then the copy worked after that.

    This problem happens when I simply right click and make a copy of the file in the same folder, or if I drag and drop it to another hard drive to make a copy.

    Is there a way to clean up the problem? I run Windows XP Pro.

    Thank you.

    Have you tried a system restore?

    Have you tried completing the installer to see if it keep prompting you after it installs?
