    I have had AVS installed and removed around seven times during testing and never had any problem like you describe.

    Just un-installed AVS on my Windows XP machine on the 18th and coincidently used my CD Burner the next day and it worked ok. Hope you can get to the bottom of it.

    I've been yelling about this all over the place here and on Kaspersky forums.
    No one seems to give a damn. Tehnically speaking it's a very retarded bug (was whole Q&A sector on launch or something?) and only option to avoid it (and keep on using AOL AVS) is to get this CD burner software...

    Free Easy CD-DVD Burner
    http://www.snapfiles.com/get/fecddvd.html

    It's a very easy and free tool to burn all sorts of CD's and DVD's.
    I think it's even easier to use and has some more features.
    This one is 100% working with AOL AVS and i haven't experienced any similar problems like with Vista burning software.
    Let me know how you decided... :)

    EDIT:
    Actually my problem is apperantly a bit different. Though it was still caused by AOL AVS... So it's higly possible that you're experiencing problems because of AOL AVS too...

    maybe you burner is broke they are very poorly made these days.
    they only like £15 for a dual layer burner.
    my old driver used to suddenly stop reading certain discs even ones ive put on computer in the past.
    so i got a new drive and all is well.

    All CD/DVD/peripheral devices are usually the first thing to go out in a computer system. The laser emitting device eventually malfunctions after reading/writing data for so long. I wonder if it is same as those hair loss laser combs that are being sold now? :D :p

    You can try this : start,run,type devmgmt.msc press enter now press on the +-icon before cd-/dvd-rom stations rightclick on you dvd drive and choose disable. When it is disabled re-enable it again. Sometimes two burning software can cause conflicts even remaints of it. Try to remove the remaints of a second burning software or uninstall it completely. If that didn't work than your drive is broken.
