When I upgraded to Windows XP a couple of years ago, I tried downloading Roxio Easy CD Creator but it wasn’t compatible so I had to remove it. Ever since then when I start up my computer I get the following message on my task bar:
Devices or applications disabled
‘CD Recording Software’ will cause Windows to become unstable. Windows has prevented these devices from loading. Click here for more dtails.
When I click on the bubble, I get this:
CD Recording Software
A CD-recording driver is installed that might cause stability problems, including problems shutting down and problems using a CD/DVD drive. This driver will be disabled.
This driver might have been installed by Easy CD Creator, Windows Media Player or RealJukebox. You might not be able to record CDs until you obtain compatible drivers.
Roxio, Inc. provides an update for Easy CD Creator users at the Easy CD Creator Updates Web site.
For Windows Media Player users, see the Microsoft Web site at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/windowsxp/roxio.asp.
For RealJukebox users, see the RealNetworks Web site at http://switchboard.real.com/rj2/?cd=xpfix.

I tried typing “Roxio” “CD Recording Software” and Easy CD creator" in the XPs search results box but nothing came up. Any suggestions? I figure while I’m there I can remove other old drivers for old programs or devices I no longer have.
