Roxio update manager trys to load on my computer. When I try to remove it from my programs I get a message that states I cannot remove it because it is attempting to install. Any idea's?


Wait for it to finish if it is installing, or if it isn't go to control panel and select Programmes and features. Scroll down the list when it has settled and select Roxio then Uninstall.
That will stop it.

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.

Roxio Media Manager continues to try to install


Hello,

After reading your problem I came across some interesting references about roxio and agent.exe.
Seems agent.exe is used by many programs to update themselves over the internet, and it was giving a lot of people headaches by using 70% or more of their CPU, like yourself.

So, I wanted to send you a few quick thoughts on how to hopefully fix your situation.

First, there were complaints about stuff trying to install itself on and on, and it was because there were command lines in the STARTUP MENU calling upon them to install every time windows starts.

So to try to fix this if its happening in your case........
Go to start>run>and type in msconfig and click ok.
Now click startup and uncheck these items.

issch
ISUSPM
'ISUSPM Start Up'
'ISUSSCheduler'
Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
Quick Time Task
Igfxtray
HotKeysCmds
MSMSGS
WMPNFCSG
COMMUNICATOR
PERSISTENCE (igfxpers)
DLA


Then click apply, then ok and restart your computer.
When windows starts, you will see a window saying that changes were made to the configuration utility. When you see it, click on the little white box saying not to show this any more.
And if you really miss not having something you unchecked, you can always go back there and recheck it!

Maybe now you will have the chance to purge all things Roxio from your system.
Best of luck!!

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.
