SOURCE: roxio media manager install

If you go to start menu and run, type in msconfig.

Go to the startup tab and uncheck the items you don't want loading up - roxwatch9.exe is one (whether or not there's a separate entry for media manager I can't recall).

Reboot, tell the nag screen please go away and don't bother me again.

I've dual booted win8 with linux, to remove i used "easyBCD" to restore MBR, and deleted the partition. the deleted partition was lost and my harddisk capacity (showing as online) reduced to 300gb fro


erase your drive and deallocate and repartiton your whole drive using fdisk(windows) or utility softwares like killdisk
also one thing is to be noted that Linux systems recognizes the windows fat32 and ntfs partitions but windows doesn't recognize file systems like ext4 or swap which are the prime type of file systems partitions used in Linux systems!

My computer is very slow, sometimes freezes or won't load and will not shut down


If your laptop computer won't shut itself down even after you select the "Shut Down" option from your "Start" menu, this means that too many programs are still open on your computer. Before Windows can shut down, it needs to manually close all open software, and having too many programs open can severely delay this process or cause Windows to lock up. Closing these programs will help your machine shut down as normal.
b> Right-click on your task bar. Click "Show Windows Stacked." This will maximize all of the program windows for all open programs on your desktop. The windows will be stacked one on top of the other on-screen. Click the "X" box in the corner of the first window to close that particular program. This will reveal the next program window in the stack. Continue to close these programs until you see your desktop wallpaper again. This, coupled with the fact that your task bar should now be cleared of all program icons, indicates that you have successfully closed all program windows. Your laptop will now shut down normally.

Good chance your explorer.exe was infected and the clean caused a problem best fix is to boot with your windows cd and run a repair.
