permanently remove media manager?

Question

Just installed the program Roxio RecordNow 9 Music lab and can't figure out how to remove the item "media manager services" from the taskbar of Windows XP.

 

Not only that but why, after deselecting certain aspects such as media manager and label maker during the install process that they installed anyways?

 

Many thanks for your help and time. :D

And why does this program quadruple my startup time during a restart?

 

And why does this program ask me this same question every startup?!

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 that you know you disabled some start-up items and please go away and don't pester me again ;)

While this works it is NOT a best practice. If you keep looking in the treads you should be able to find a way to get rid of it within Roxio. I have done so before and must do it again. It is really to bad that Roxio doesn't read these threads and stop making this crapware a default or make it easier to get rid of!

Crapware is in the eye of the user. If you don't like the program, there are others.

 

Go into media manager and select tools and then stop monitoring folders.

You realize of course that you replied to a 5 year old thread!
