Stop RoxWatch9.exe


cte

Question

RoxWatch9.exe is consuming 99% of my CPU time. I tried double clicking the Media Manager Services in the system tray ... this starts to bring it up, but never finishes. I tried killing it via the Task Manager ... but get the message, "Access is denied".

 

Info: Windows 2000 SP 4 ... AMD Athlon XP, 1466 MHz (5.5 x 267) 1700+ ... yesterday I installed Easy Media Creator 9.

 

I see in the Task Manager these other programs: RoxWatchTray9.exe and RoxMediaDB9.exe. How do I remove these permanently so they never start up?

Disable them via msconfig.

 

Windows 2000 does not come with msconfig :glare: , but you can use the version that was supplied for XP :ninja: . You can either google it or borrow a copy of XP from a friend. Let us know whe you get a copy and we will walk you through it.

I was able to find a copy of msconfig on the internet. After I disabled the Rox programs and rebooted I ended up with a message, "You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes the way Windows starts. The SCU is currently in the Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode ...." Not sure I want to go this route. I'd rather remove them permanently.

 

After rebooting, I was able to select a Rox icon in the system tray (I don't remember the name of the program) and turn off all watches. This stopped all Rox programs running in the background. However, after rebooting, I found RoxWatchTray9 running again. Any ideas how to get rid of this program too?

 

Also, is there a description of the installation programs? I installed 1Z22TZX0R03_EMCSuitev9.1efigsd.exe ... but have not yet installed 2006EZS0R03_ContentCDv9.1.exe. Any idea what the second program does?

Windows is just telling you that a change was made to the way it starts. It will not reappear the next time you reboot. RoxWatchTray9.exe is the name of the program that you saw in the lower right corner and disabled. It can only be disabled in startup. Also, a program called CCleaner can be downloaded from filehippo.com that has a much better uninstaller than Windows. It's free and good for other things too. 2006EZS0R03_ContentCDv9.1.exe is the extra content for EMC9.
