Roxio Creator 9.0 De Malware Update?



Does anyone know if the following filenames are used by Roxio to update Roxio Creator 9.0 DE; or, are they malware?


1) Dell915Patch.exe ----- 2) pxengine4_12_19a.exe ----- 3) UM_100B51f_C10_20Lang.exe


I purchased a used Dell Inspiron 9400 T7400 that came with a Roxio Creator 9.0 DE CDROM. After repartitioning and formatting the hard drive, installing XP, Office 2007, McAfee Total Protection, and the Roxio, plus some other well know minor utilities, I've periodically noticed a pop-up notifying me of a the availability of a critical software update that I then promptly closed; because, I didn't immediately recognize what it pertained to; and, I was too busy to bother looking at it more closely.


Today, however, I took the time to look at it; and it appears, at first glance, to be from Roxio. It indicates that there are three files I need to install, one from July 2008, a second from October 2008, and a third from December 2008. If I were to check a box in front of one of these three and click on the associated listbox line, the install of that file would supposedly commence. Alternately, l couild save each of the files to disk.


I opted to first download the three files, which were named:


1) Dell915Patch.exe - the properties version tab indicates it was created with Created with Visual Patch 2.0; but, no Company is given. Copyright is: Patch Engine Copyright © 2005-2006 Indigo R


2) pxengine4_12_19a.exe - the properties version tab indicates the Company is Sonic Solutions; Copyright is: Copyright © Sonic Solutions


3) UM_100B51f_C10_20Lang.exe - there is no properties version tab or any other info about the origin of this file


McAfee doesn't see anything wrong with these files; but, I haven't scanned them with anything else.


I can't find any of these files in posts on this forum, nor on the Dell community support forum.


There's an indication at http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X4860099534...5Bn5D2EEXE.html and at http://www.prevx.com/filenames/39861353158...5Bn5D2EEXE.html and at http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showuser=156543 that these files; but, I'm not familiar with Prevx and don't think I can be definite about this at this time.


Any ideas that might help me with determine whether these files comprise a valid Roxio update will be appreciated. I've also posted this on the Dell Community Support Forum.

That sounds like the Update Manager is doing its thing.


Spnic/Roxio subscribes to an update service which presents you with updates for the software you have. If you go to the top toolbar and find the 'Check for updates' button you can make the Update Manager run yourself, otherwise it will check for available updates when you run Creator 9.0 DE.


The PX engine update is an update to your burning engine. I don't know the other two because I don't run Dell software, but if they're from the Update Manager they will be genuine.
