[I]aha - that's where i was last time - but when i rechecked the Run box, it had placed " " either side of the command prompt. when i removed these i was able to follow the url . . .
i have set to 'disabled' as per instructions - restarted - and ... the "Found New Hardware" bubble(s) still appears + wizard box for Sony DW-U18A: i thought that by disabling the Windows Burner, it would dispense with these Windows bubbles which keep popping up, whenever i boot up. But no - how do i get rid of these pop-ups, please - i've got a feeling they are going to screw up anything i subsequently try and install?
