I'm getting blue screen and recently installed old copy of Roxio 5. Error happens on CD ejection.

Was getting blue screen error soon after xp login screen load, comp crash. Ran startup menu (F12 before xp starts) - "Boot hard disk (C:)" - "Last known good configuration" - Fixed. HOWEVER, I believe it was malware disguised as the real file, as I am sure that soon before the error occurred my retard brother was surfing porn sites and probably picked one up.
It has worked fine until recently (Roxio Easy 5 Creator) but it is now failing so I suspect a MS update
