Right Click Menu opens installer

Ok, so I have Win. 7 Prof. and everything was going great until I installed Roxio Creator 2010 Pro. It was a clean install no problems there and the program works fine but now anytime I right click on any part of explorer or in the start menu it pops open a window trying to install roxio again. I tried to uninstall it all and see if that helped and it didn't. Still there. I've tried to repair the installation to see if that would help and it didn't. I'm at a loss. Please help.

First lets get back to normal. Use system restore or System image to before the problem. When thats done we work from there.

Try using system image to a time prior to the prob lem; this has a great potential for correcting the problem. If that does not work, you can do a repair install. Using your DVD, use it as though you are installing,again. When you get to the option chose repair installation. This will bring everything back to factory settings. Your documents, etc should not be affected, but might be good to back up. I am certain that you will be up and running real soon. This should not be that difficult to correct

Download and install Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from Microsoft website

Direct Link: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...bd/msicuu2.exe

If that link is broken use this page: Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

Install it, run it from its start menu shortcut. Select Roxio Creator Pro 2010 (or all the Roxio stuff there) -> Click Remove. Done, Exit the tool.
