Driver blocked due to incompatibility



At Vista boot up message appears "Driver blocked due to incompatibility".
Driver is "Sonic Solutions DLA".
I click message and window opens that can be closed or check for updates.
There is no update. I close the window and it immediately re-opens. I have
to do this 7 times before the window stays shut.
In Add/Remove programs the program is listed as "Roxio DLA" and it will not
uninstall. (even in safe mode) I click but nothing happens. The DVD drive in
My Computer does not have a DLA tab to disable the device and thus stop
Vista from ranting.

Is there a way to stop this?

I did a Vista Home Premium update from XP Media Center.
There are MANY things that no longer work and I'm taking things one at a

Your description of the error matched my experience exactly.

After 109 minutes on the phone with a Dell tech, the final suggestion (after
manually removing traces of Roxio software from the registry failed) was to
do a clean install of Windows XP, followed by an upgrade of Windows Vista
Ultimate -- since uninstall of Windows Vista is NOT permitted.

I will try your suggestion of removing the KB update, instead.
