Type 'msconfig' in the run box and choose start-up tab from the dialogue that appears, remove check from box that refers to Roxio and restart, or there's a program called 'Windows Installer CleanUp Utility' that might help, read about it here:

I can open itunes and an error keeps poping up" roxio media manager" unable to find certificate file HELP


Hi there,

Here are some steps you can take to resolve your problem.

1. Download, install and run "Ccleaner"; a handy little temp file and registry cleaner/organizer. On many occassions, after running it, goofy messages disappear having been a result of faulty registry entries or deletions built up over time.

http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/

2. Open Roxio and go to help> updates, and download and install any updates that are available.

3. Open iTunes and go to help. updates and do the same.

4. If you still see the message at this point, go to the control panel> programs, and uninstall Roxio. After restarting your computer, the message should be gone for sure. If you have the install disc for Roxio that came with your Dell, simply re-install it. If not, use Media Player to do your burning with, or any other of a vast number of free DVD/CD burners that can be easily downloaded and installed.

Good Luck

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 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.
