Well when an application is locked and (not responding) try to force it to shut off by going into task manager (rick click on the bar at the bottom of your desktop on any unused area and a menu will show the task manager then select it by clicking on it, or to type ctrl+alt+del and select task manager) and go into applications and select the application an click on end task, and click ok on any other window that comes up thereafter.

if that does not get your application to shut down, try to do it by looking for the process that runs the application and go into the processes tab in task manager and end any process related with the application (you may need to know or guess what process to end as the names sometimes may be acronyms of short versions of the actual name of the program you're running on the system.

If you want it to stop simply go to "run" type msconfig and click on startup blind. Simply untick anything that has Roxio in it, reboot and voila no more agro.

Roxio update manager cannot find Um.msi


I found this...may be helpful...

Usually, a "UM.MSI" error means that the update manager may have become corrupted and needs to be reinstalled

To resolve :

> Permanently remove the Sonic Update Manager. This will not affect the performance of any Sonic/Roxio software currently installed on the system.


> Reinstall the application.if any errors while installing then install the fix.


> This may be caused by removing certain non-Sonic/Roxio applications that share file resources with our Sonic/Roxio software. To fix, you will need to replace these files with this fix utility: http://tools.roxio.com/support/dell/isum_hotfix.exe


> Be sure all Sonic and Roxio applications are shut down before launching this utility. This hotfix requires a reboot. No reinstallation of the software is necessary.

Every time i turn on windows the roxio media manager keeps loading and does not turn off. how do i get ride of it


Once the system is booted up click the start button on the taskbar, click run, type msconfig in the box and enter. That gets you into the startup files where you can remove Roxio from the startup. That does not delete Roxio from the system, it just stops it from opening at startup. If Roxio starts upon start after that, then there is some application starting that requires Roxio, and you will need to address that issue. That rogue application should also be visible in the startup list so you can remove it thereby fixing the issue. Be sure to save the settings.

I seem to have a conflict between Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 and some other programme (maybe IE6). When I try to open VideoWave it shuts down wirth error exception message in some memory address.


The Roxio shipped with Dell system has bugs in them since they are shipped hence cannot be repaired. you need to uninstall Roxio and install IE7.
