Back when roxio were having those issues with XP (this was the XP first came out) 1 out of 100 people maybe had success fixing their computer without a format. the lucky people just had a messed up OS. the unlucky ones had the BSOD. when you uninstall roxio, it would take dll and critcial files with it. so you most likely had to format
this was a time when most people didn't know how to reinstall windows . XP made installation an easy process. actually win 2000 and ME made it an easy process with the booting from cd feature , But people were so use to DOS, floppies and fdisc, that they didn't noticed. we know that now. back then people were taking their computer to the shop for repairs when things went wrong.
since the begining of windows, roxio were always the number one selling CD burning software because of their ease of use. they lost that status when they couldn't make software compatible with xp.
they eventually fix that problem with roxio easey cd creator 6, but too many people were turn off of the product by then
