Roxio Creator 2010 Special Edition is a software program developed by Roxio. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The setup package generally installs about 103 files and is usually about 4.88 MB (5,121,000 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 91% of users of Roxio Creator 2010 Special Edition come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and Australia.
