All comments about drvmcdb.sys:
PAULK It causes xp pro to go BSOD on Bootup
Craig The driver file drvmcdb.sys, is Veritas filter driver for Windows 2000 and XP. Veritas makes backup and availability products, and are common parts of other utilities which perform those functions. The DRVMCDB.SYS driver from VERITAS sends an IOCTL-Query to Microsoft's PPA.SYS/PPA3.SYS driver(s), Removal of this driver can have some bad side effects you may not see until such time as you ae in need of a critical restore. I would recommend _not_ uninstalling it!
Sonic Solutions produces Roxio products.
Nick Rumin Microsoft Online Crash Analysis diagnosed drvmcdb.sys as the probable cause of a crash which occured when I booted up my pc running XP. It was identified as being a Sonic d/dvd recording software component
Edgar It causes your external hard drives to have "delay write failure"
Nick Rumin It is associated with the DLA program which is part of the MyDVD Deluxe Suite made by Sonic. It causes intermittently a blue screen crash on boot up. Sonic have advised me that they have an upgrade which solves this problem. Have not tried it yet
Alexandre Cruz windows XP does not work without it!! Do NOT remove it. I almost lost all my data doing it.
