    Running Windows XP, and every time my windows starts up, it wants to automatically install Roxio. I set the service to disabled for the time being.

    Is there something in the Registry I can look out for and/or change ?

    Do you have Roxio installed? Have you tried uninstalling, rebooting, and reinstalling?

    I used to have that problem with Roxio RecordNow 8.0. The install or uninstall of certain programs would cause that problem. I quit using it and switched to a different CD-burning program.

    Try running a disk cleanup and check to remove all temp files (or remove them manually if you know how). Sometimes an install extraction will be placed in a generic temp file area and the install or uninstall of other programs will sweep up the old installation and start that install again. This will happen especially if the user specifies the same location of the setup extraction each time without moving or removing the previous extraction.

    Doesn't sound exactly like the problem faced by the OP but ya never know, and it doesn't hurt to clean up the temp files.
