I'm new to the PC environment (as far as installing hardware and software) so don't laugh. I attempted to add an Acer 4406EU 4x4x6 USB external CD-RW and Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4.x to my system and I didn't realize until it was too late that the driver(s) is/are not compatible with Windows XP Professional. I uninstalled the device and the software but when I boot my system, I get the following: "Device or applications disabled. 'CD recording software' will cause Windows to become unstable. Windows has prevented these drivers from loading." I've already been to the Roxio support site and performed their recommendations with regards to the registry but the message still reappears every time I boot up. I think that the problem is with the Adaptec Easy CD Creator install / uninstall but I don't know what. The two drivers involved are CDR4_2K and CDRALW2K; I moved them from my DRIVERS folder and lost my internal CD reader. Any ideas?
