It's a message keep popping up on the screen about sonic updated manage some like that


This is about Sonic software installed on your PC. If your PC is new then just update it. Please use this link: http://tools.roxio.com/support/dell/isum_hotfix.exe
If you're not using it and really wants to get rid of it, then all you have to do is to just disable it. To disable the Sonic Update service that starts up when you computer starts, you can go to Start, click on Run, and then type in MSCONFIG and pressing Enter .
Next click on the Startup tab and you’ll see a list of all of the processes that start up when your computer starts up. You can uncheck any service to prevent it from loading during bootup. For the Sonic software, you need to search for startup item named sgtray, or that has the words Sonic Update Manager or Update Manager in the path for the command or location. Also, if you see isuspm or issch, go ahead and uncheck them too.
Hope this help . . .

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.

A unwanted pop up (SONIC UPDATE MANAGER) refuses to be deleted & trys to prevent me logging on & off


Sounds like spyware/adware. Download Microsoft Defender from Microsoft.com and run a scan and then delete anything that it finds unless you're sure you want it.

A pop up.refuses to be deleated its called (sonic update manager) It has not been asked for & messes up logging in & logging out.


Hello,
This pop up is because Sonic update Manager is running in the background. If you don't use Sonic then uninstall it else if you want to keep Sonic but get rid of this pop-up then
click on start --> Run --> type msconfig in the run box
Go to Services tab and first check the bottom check box that says "Hide all Microsoft services" then go through the list and see if you can find anything that matches the description of Sonic update Manager and uncheck it.
Click on the Startup tab and uncheck the items that match the sonic description.
Apply the changes and the computer would ask you to reboot to apply the changes, reboot the computer.

Let me know if you still face issues after that.

Please rate the solution

Regards,
Srinivas
