Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I start up windows XP - used for many years satisfactorily, it now tries to start a utility to install Windows Update manager for Roxio. This started suddenly for sume reason about a month ago and at that time I had Roxio Easy Craatro on the computer. I uninstalled that program and tried to completely clean out everything in that directory. I then bought and installed the new version of Roxio creator 2010 but when I stary Windows up, the Rosie Updagte Manager installer starts and nothing seems to defeat it staying there. I did get a utility that deleted that program but left me with a Roxio Burn Manage trying to be installed but no source. Driving me nust and I'm been using a computer for 40+ years Billy J Millis

It sounds like something in your Startup menu, that wasn't uninstalled. This is a problem, because it can be named anything, and you probably won't recognize it. Unless you can find someone that has had the exact same problem, and identified the process, you will have to try to restore your computer to a date previous to that when the problem started occuring. That would be the easiest fix. If that doesn't work, you might try googling the problem, you might get lucky and find someone that's figured it out. Last resort, of course, is to reload XP. Good luck, I know your pain, been there.

Recently bought & installed Roxio 2011 on Windows XP and it worked fine. Upgraded laptop to Windows 7. Roxio stopped working. Uninstalled all Roxio programs and reinstalled Roxio Creator 2011. No...


If you are getting the error at startup, roxio service might not started or disabled. What you can try to do is to enable all roxio service. refer to the steps below.
- click start > run - type services.msc - look for all roxio service i.e roxwatch.db - double click it then select the startup type to automatic - save the changes then restart computer

Download and apply a hotfix from Sonic. The file name of the hotfix is Isum_hotfix.exe. Use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to remove entries that reference Sonic Update Manager.

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!!

This version of Windows does not support this version of Roxio DLA. This product, which was created by Roxio, Inc., has been blocked from running because it might keep your computer from starting correctly...


Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
  1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
  2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
