Maybe you didn't understand what I asked?
What Roxio Program pulled up this updater? From the programs Help, Check For Updates?
Or is it a entry in control panel left over from previous installs, what it looks like to me?
You are quite correct; I did not understand your question.
Two cases: first, the Update Manager wakes up periodically on its own and tries to notify me of some available update. I cannot see the notices or settings, so I do not know what applications it is configured to check, etc. Second, I navigate to "Start", "Program Updates" and get the same unreadable display. In the later case, if I leave the Update Manager running, after a couple of minutes I get a pop-up with notice to wait while Roxio East LP to MP3 is being configured then eventually a request to insert the product CD. Prior to installing Easy LP to MP3 a couple of weeks ago, the Update Manager simply popped up periodically with the unreadable display. I suppose I never let it run long enough to know if anything else would happen over time.
Programs -- Help, Check For Updates: Navigating in this way, none of the programs left from prior installations (PhotoShow Express, BackOnTrack) or current program (Creator 2012 Pro, and Easy LP to MP3) invoke the Update Manager. They seem to perform their own update check, directly.
Software Updates (Software Manager): If I launch this directly, it seems to run normally. I can check settingts and see that it is configured to perform update checks for multiple products including these from Roxio - BackOnTrack, Burn, CinePlayer, Creator 2012 Pro, Update Manager, and Easy LP to MP3. <---- Why would Update Manager be listed here in the Software Manager update list????
I hope I got it right this time and that this information is useful.
Thanks for the help.
