I have been trying to track down system errors that may be causing my Windows 7 Home Premium to slow down and crash. Here is a frequent error I am seeing.  I'd like to know how to fix it.

Go to Windows Task Manager, then services, then stop the service by right clicking on it.  If you still have the issue, you may restart it.  Mine is stopped because I did not want to catalog my files using Roxio.

Are you getting a hang or are you just experiencing slow performance?  If you have a lot of music, video and image files, it takes a long time to get them cataloged; at least the first time.

Look in your tool bar at the bottom of your screen or at the hidden icons.  If you see something like Roxio watch or similar, just turn if off.

Explain crash and provide any error messages.

I am having the exact same issue.  And the IRST software is taking long to load as well.  Is the Roxio software causing other application problems as well?
Why is that Roxio software running anyway?  I only want the software for burning disks and editing media files, NOT to change my system behavior or load software on bootup.  This stinks of bloatware and utilities we dont need.  And apparently buggy at that.
Please advise on why this is loading and how to remove it.  I have the Intel software there for disk monitoring.  Dont need another one slowing it all down and generating issues in event log.

Did you bother to read post #2 and do what is recommended? I have no idea what Intel software you are referring to. What is IRST software?

The best bet is to stop what you don't want runnning at boot.  You can use Windows msconfig and the the start up tab to stop items from starting at boot.  You then reboot and acknowledge that you made changes.

If you are not sure what you need or don't need, download and install Soluto  software (Google for it) .  It will give you three options (start at boot, start after boot and start when program is opened)  for each of the two categories it sees.  1) No brainer 2) You choice.
