Roxio Media Manager Installation Stuck

Q: Roxio Media Manager Installation Stuck

I purchased a Blackberry 8830 and installed Blackberry Desktop Manager, VZAccess Manager, and Audio Bay Media manager to access podcasts on my Blackberry. Ever since I continue to get the following messages, "Please wait while Windows configures Roxio Media Manager," or "Unable to find Certificate File," or "Please install CD to continue Roxio Media Manager installation." The problem is that I don't ever recall downloading anything from Roxio media Manager and am not sure where it came from. I uninstalled Audio Bay, Blackberry Desktop Manager and VZAccess Manager and now am unable to install anything because the computer says that the computer is busy installing another program.

Any help or advice to stop or get rid of Roxio would be very much appreciated!!!

Preferred Solution: Roxio Media Manager Installation Stuck

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows Installer Clean Up Utility.

once installed, and open, click the roxio program, and the button to fix.

i suspect roxio software might be part of another software you picked up and is installing itself as part of the License agreement.

I am running windows XP pro sp3. I had installed blackberry desktop software and with it this Roxio Media Manager keeps trying to install itself with windows installer, as soon as you cancel it tries again.

I have tried to remove the blackberry software from add/remove programs but i get a message asking for the msi install file which i no longer have. It asks for version 4.3. When i click cancel here the roxio stops trying to install for awhile and the Blackberry entry in the add/remove programs disappears but both come back on reboot.

I have also looked into the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVerion>Run and RunOnce and also the same location under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE for some kind of roxio registry to delete but there is none.

Looking forward to hearing your suggestions =D

A:Removing Roxio Media Manager

Found this on another website, hope it helps for you .Re-download the install file. If you go to you can choose 4.5 with media and 4.5 without media! Without doesn't try to install roxio. With does but it should be imbedded within the the download.Another SolutionI seemed to have solved it by doing a 'repair' installation in the control panel's add/remove of the BB program.Hope that helps

Within the last three days my computer running Windows XP has started trying to install Roxio Media Manager. It keeps running over and over again and will not stop.

I have purchased Error Expert to try and stop it but it has not worked. Wondering a couple fo tings. If I totally uninstall Roxio Media Manager will that help? Not sure this would be a good thing but this is driving me crazy.

How do I stop windows installer from trying to install this progam?

As part of installing blackberry desktop software, I had to also install Roxio Media Manager. Now Roxio media manager wont install, and every time I restart, The installation process also starts, and I am unable to get rid of it. The problem is that even if I cancel that installer, I cannot install any other program, even after its windows is closed message is

error 1500 : Another installation is in progress.....

So now I am unable to install any other program. It seems that this Roxio media manager installer has been configured to autorun on startup, and I dont know how to get rid of it.

I recently tried installing Roxio Easy CD Creator 5 basic (the free version that came with the computer) on my laptop. The laptop had a fresh install of Windows XP on it a few months ago, and I am just now getting around to reinstalling Roxio. During the install, the system crashed and rebooted. When it came back up and I tried installing again, a dialog box came up stating that the software was already installed and it wouldn't let me go any further. The software doesn't show up in add remove programs, so I can't uninstall it. Does anyone know of a registry setting or even the exact file that makes the wizard think it is installed so that I can delete it?

OK, heres one for you.
I use Roxio 7 Creator Classic on rare occasions.
Just now, I go to use it and have discovered it's having an issue with my system.

The select source window will continually refresh, unless I have disc's in every drive.
Navigating to a location is quite difficult as it will refresh before I can get to the folder I want.

Only change I can think of is adding a codec pack to play a video, (AC3 Filter I think)
some time ago.

I have tried a repair on Roxio, yet the refresh remains.
I will try removing the AC3 filter and see if it helps.
Out of frustration I will try a reinstall of Roxio, but would like some feedback of any ideas first.

I am currently using the Roxio Media Creator 10 LJ. I was wondering which option would I use to burn a music cd in file format with 10-12 albums in which I would be able to play in my car. There are several options in which have me confused. For instance there is a JukeBox creater, and also a Data Disk creator which seem like they do the same thing. Which option is best ?

I still use Roxio 5 Easy CD Creator - came free with both my Dell Workstation and Laptop.

Uses the basic and original Adaptec engine copying software: in fact, Adaptec no longer sell their CD copying product as all proprietory rights have been sold to Roxio.

Roxio software is a very robust and simple to use program.

To back-up files to CD is a snap, as you can Drag 'N Drop in Explorer, when the disk is left open and continue to add files until the disk is full.

Not sure about the price: seems fair.

This is a long story but I am going to give you the short short version. I had EMC 9 and upgraded to 10, February 12. I have had nothing but problem after problem with the software. First concerning my sound, and now re-installation. Every time I go to reinstall the software after doing everything (including a clean install) short of reformatting my harddrive, the installation just stops and reverses the process. Then I have to reboot and try all over again. I have contacted Roxio, countless times, and even posted on their forum, but over a month later I am in a worse position than when I started. Any other advice would be genuinely appreciated.

A:Media Player 10 /roxio 9 And Intervideo

Hi Whiskers,
Media Palyer 10 should drive a DVD. Perhaps your DVD player is bad... they burn out frequently after a year.
Intervidio was installed when your burner software was installed... you can remove it without problems...
You do have a lot of software competing for DVD rights... Media Player, Power DVD 4, Intervideo, Camera XVID.
First thing to do is reinstall Media Player 10, or download the newer and better Media Player 11... then click on all these software tools to give or remove permissions.

What do I need to do to correct this?

I also have Nero 6, but I cannot make dvd video without converting avi files to mpg, so I only use it for data.

My OS is Windows 2000 sp4.

I hope this is the right Forum for this. I am running Roxio 7 and have created a 'production' of a slide show with sound. I would like to burn this to a CD but it just goes off into the 'weeds' and says 'loading component'. I 'suspect' this has something to do with it only showing DVD function but I don't really know.
It looks like it has sent the production file off somewhere that it doesn't know what to do with it.
Has anyone used this program and had this problem.
I don't have a DVD drive and wonder if that is what I have to have! Thanks,
Ken J.

Is there any way for me to copy those songs by using Windows Media Player or Roxio?

Thanks for your help in advance.

When trying to burn a custom DVD with this program (basically add an .avi file, plus some sort of .jpg for a background, stick in a PLAY button and go...), the thing insists on burning it's lame background music to the menu, so that when the DVD is played, and runs the main menu, there's this elevator muzak playing in the background.

So, basically:

1. Run Roxio 9
2. Select Create DVD
3. on the taskbar there's a little speaker-looking thing that when you click it gives you menu sound options: fade in, fade out, or mute.

When you click to select mute, a little checkmark appears in a checkbox, but when you click preview or burn, the sound inexplicably returns and you get the muzak.

It's pretty annoying. I just want to burn a basic DVD with no bells and whistles.

Anyone know what the bug is with this program?

I am having a problem with trying to reinstall the Roxio Easy Media Creator 7. I believe it got corrupted when I tried to load Google Earth? The Drag & Drop function and maybe others are not working.

The uninstall is not clean and may require manual deleting of any items left on the Drives and registry. I did a search for files and removed everything pertaining to Roxio.

I also went into the registry and did the same except for... shared files.

Question... Should the Roxio shared files also be removed?

The error message says that components are missing to make it work. What does that mean?

If anyone has a procedure to fix my problem it would be appreciated.

Hi. I am considering buying subject software. I have just been introduced to making slide shows with my digital photos and music, and need a program for DVD authoring so I can show them on my familys' and friends TVs. My question is would I be better off to buy the XP/Vista version for around $80 in case I ever upgrade my OS from XP Pro (which is not in my plans for the immediate future) or would I be just as well off the pay about $50 for the non-Vista version?

Also run checkdisk

You will need Admin rights for this
go to Start and then start typing "command prompt" until the shortcut shows up in the search list. Then right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator". Choose to confirm or type in your password to elevate the process.

Should have searched these forums more carefully before posting.

I tried the windows installer remover utility as suggested by several posters. Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 was not listed by the program, but at the top of the list was 7.0*** (I forget the exact numbers) but it looked suspiciously like the version number for Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 so I highlighted it and let the program remove it.

Problem solved. Thanks to all those people who posted before me.

I installed easy media creator suite. It took over 30 minutes to install. (And my computer is pretty fast). After the installation my computer became very very slow. (Also, when I clicked on the easy media creator icon it took forever to display the screen and even more time to get a menu).

I had to uninstall all of the easy media creator programs. My operating system is Windows XP Version 2002, Service Pack 2. My computer is a Dell Dimension with an Intel Core 2 CPU 6400 @2.13 Ghz and 2.00 GB of Ram. The Dell came with Roxio Creator LE Dell Edition, Build: 2.4.32a, Serial Number: SC-204B28K.

What needs to be done to get it to work properly and fast. Would the solution be to take the loss and get NERO or some other software? Any sugggestions on some alternative to ROXIO and NERO ?

Recently I've been unable to copy files to a CD-R using Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5.

In order to solve my problem I'm supposed to "re-create the Upper and Lower filters...." Therefore, I've gone into the registry and deleted the upper and lower filters, as instructed.

Unfortunately, that's as far as I've been able to go. My next step is to "download and run filterfixer."

Where do I go download filterfixer? Actually, I've done this once before, but at that time I received explicit instructions from Roxio as to exactly what I should do. Unfortunately, I don't have those instructions available, so I don't remember how I got filterfixer. I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who can help me. Thank you.

Recently my hard drive (Dell Dimension desktop) crashed and I had a brand new hard drive installed.

I installed Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 which I had used many times before with my old hard drive, and I never had any problems with the program recognizing my disc drives, D and E.

Now, for some reason, EMC 9 does not recognize the discs inserted into drives D and E, although My Commputer does recognize them.

What must I do to correct this problem? Do I perhaps need to change a setting? Do I possibly need to update a driver? At this point it seems to me that this problem has been caused by my having installed a new hard drive, so I figure there should be an easy solution.

Thank you.

A:Stuck during installation

Hello Runif and welcome to the Seven Forums!

Indeed it's really weird. But we can search for a few things:

1. When you say the wireless icon flashes, you mean it turns on, or it turns on and off repeatedly?

2. If we should focus on that wireless thing, I can suggest 2 things:
a. Turn off the other notebook if it's on during install, perhaps it tries to connect to the same network and results in an IP conflict.
b. Turn off your wireless access point/router during install. Maybe an IP conflict or something is taking place again.

3. Disable the wlan from BIOS if possible.

Windows 7 should probably have detected and installed the correct drivers for your wireless card, and maybe it tries to connect somewhere which might cause the problem.

Try that and let us know if it helped. That's the only thing that comes to mind right now.

I began installing Windows XP service pack 1 and the installation ran into an error. It says the file 'asms' is needed. I've tried using two other installation discs from friends and that does not work. I've tried having the computer boot from those discs to start a new installation but the current installation(with the error) is stuck in it and will not allow me to access the boot selection menu to boot off the disk. If anyone knows how to either start a fresh installation or resolve the missing file issue, I'd appreciate it.

To clarify the "stuck in installation": The computer boots instantly into the windows setup and displays the error. When the box is cancelled, it cancels the installation attempt and reboots the computer only to have it do the same thing again.

EDIT: Just a note I will wait 3 days for a reaply in hopes that I can get this fixed w/o bothering with Best Buy or Acer. AndI know this topic is getting no attention from my typo of re-installation it looks more like a reply to something.

Hi All
I tried to install in August the RC of Windows 7 and had to leave it because I had the same problem I am having now:
I have a msdn subscription and I have downloaded the Win 7 Ultimate, I recorded the ISO in two differents DVD and also I have created the booting USB following the indications of this forum (with UltraISO).
The problem is that the installation app always gets stuck in the screen when it is copying the Windows files. The progress remains at 0% and never changes (after waiting for 3 hours...). It reads:
Copying Windows files (0%) ... and nothing happens.
I can move the cursor and so on, but the DVD drive (or the USB drive) seems to be stopped.
I have an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2Ghz 2Gb RAM, HD SATA, DVD SATA as well.
Any help??


A:Installation gets stuck at 0%

Give us the exact steps you take before the installation hangs, messages you get, etc. and update your system specs so we will know what hardware you have. I assume you are not trying to upgrade and have formatted the hard drive during installation?

A:Pc stuck at boot manager with new gfx card insterted

Do you have another system to try the card and make sure the card has not failed?

I would tend to think you may have fried something on the mb [If the card checks ok in another system] That system [when built] was a low to mid range system as such it is not really up to supporting a high end video card. It is more than just installing a new pw supply; the mb also supplies pw to the card.

BTW you really need to list the exact pw supply that is installed.
and a power supply to support itClick to expand...

This tells us nothing other than you installed another pw supply.

I was trying to help a family member with her computer and I did a restore thru Recovery Manager.  When it got to the end it said that "Restoration did not complete"  It gives you the option to save a log, see details, or retry.  I did save a log, and I checked the details and apparently the microsoft wifi direct virtual adapter did not load.  Now it is stuck in Recovery Management.  There is no other option to get out of it, if you restart the computer itgoes right back to that blue screen with the same message on it.   Can't seem to get out of that screen!  Please help!

Often I have to open Windows Task Manager and manually close IE7 because it's using 145,000 cpu.

However, when I do this the Task Manager will not automatically update. IE7 will close, but that Task Manager still shows it as open and using a bunch of cpu. I have to close the Task Manager and then re-open it to see the change.

Why is this?

A healthy computer will update the Task Manager automatically and in real time, no?

Thanks for any help.

Sony DVD-r/CD R combo
Sony CDR cd rom
Hitachi 160 SATA HD

Here is the problem..
Went to format HD to install XP.. the Install stuck in a loop.. instead of getting the boot from cd and going to the actual installation of windows, It keeps going back the format and setup of XP.
Here is what all i have tried.

Changing boot order in Bios - no luck
changing HD's to try an install - no luck
alternate between my 2 cd-rom drives - no luck
Tried 2 diff. Winxp cds to install - no luck

Havent tried reseting my bios yet. what can I do to get windows xp to start the actual installation instead of going back to the blue screen to setup and format?

A:Win XP installation stuck in a loop

Did you respond to the "Press any key to boot from CD" after the format? . . You only need to do that the first time, after that, just let it go and it should continue

After I format a partition and begin installing, it goes threw all of the steps and gets stuck on "installing updates". I've let it sit for 2 hours and still was stuck. I've tried a different disc, and even tried a usb. It still does the same thing. But I can install ubuntu on it and it works fine. and I don't get the option to turn off upgrades before it begins the installation.

Try repartitioning your laptop's HDD through the setup, this could be the required action.

Hi. I started to install windows. Did full format for all partitions. When computer was copying files (dark blue screen, long yellow bar) from setup few failed to copy at 97th%, disk is a little bit scratched. Everything kept going fine till the end. At the last step of installation "saving setting" I stuck on. When tryed restart computer and insert another disk of windows to install computer just normaly booted and opened that installation with reading "setup is being restarted" then everything started again and stucked on "saving settings" again. How do I can format hard disk and start with good disk from the beginning?

The HD on my laptop (HP DV7) failed. I installed a SSD Corsair Force 3 as primary HD and used HP recovery disks to re-install windows Vista. The recovery from the disks goes well and all 3 recovery disks are read. However, halfway into the "software installation step" the computer seems stuck at the same point. It has been hours. Not sure what causes that or how to repair it to allow it to continue the installation.
Please let me know if you have a solution.

A:vista installation stuck

It may have been just a random error in the install.

Try it again and if you get stuck at the same place, post again.

Hi All In the last week I have set up my sons very old university tower PC in a spare room it was hand built years ago and his Uni installed Windows XP on it Its only when we turned it on we got messages saying the copy of windows was not an official copy but it still allowed us to surf web and all that a computer should do with Windows working fine but just not getting updates I got a new copy of Windows XP and the discs keycode and began the load of the new installation Xp Windows stuck at Windows XP without removing any programmes The installation had to go through Windows Xp stuck at installation around five areas to fully install and it did the verification checking files and got to the installation section and started to go through this area showing countdown of to minutes to Windows Xp stuck at installation go then it just started Windows Xp stuck at installation to go round and round sticking on this - minutes to go with the screen blacking out with just the cursor blinking in the top of the screen I tried numerous times to switch off and on and each time the screen goes to the installation page and just continues to go around the full circle back to the - minutes area and obviously failing to load although the message says loading which it obviously is nt as the disc in the drive stops spinning and the computer just goes then to a black screen As a result I cannot access anything or get out of this cycle the disk has put me in I dont have passwords or anything to access the computer in its hidden depths so wondered if there is any way of breaking the cycle its in and trying to get the new windows disc on so I can use the computer nbsp

A:Windows Xp stuck at installation

Might worth it to format (erase everything) and reinstall fresh.
When doing an update to an operating system it is difficult to get the system stable again, since a lot of files are supposedly to been "updated", but in the process the system hangs or the files are being used or simply corrupted copy process and all goes to oblivion.
Hard way: Try the recovery console by booting from your XP CD.

Windows 8 is asking me to unistall PC health monitor which I have already unistalled (including folders and registry).

I cannot go forward until I resolve this issue. I have spent 2 days searching for a result without sucess.
Thanks to any one who can help.

Try going in "Recovery" and go to a point prior to installing offending program. If you need help getting to the recovery screen go to the tutorial section of the eights then click on "r" and it will bring up a screen that will hopefully be able to help you. If not then post back here and I will walk you through the process. . .good luck.

Download??? I don't follow that.

If I had a Windows 7 ISO, I would burn it to a DVD, and then install from the DVD.

Or am I misunderstanding something?

hi guys, i am no computer wiz so can help please be simple and not in too technical words
basically i have purchased windows 7 home premium and when i install it, it starts working until it gets stuck on 87% of "gathering files" in setup. i have tried installing this on another pc and it works so it is not a faulty disk, also i have tried another disk and i have the same problem.

what do i do. both times when installing on my alienware m9750 (the laptop i am talking about) i have tried doing an update coz i don't really want to lose microsoft word and other files, but will do a complete installation if people think that's the answer.

Please help!

p.s. i have tested my pc with the microsoft windows 7 compatability check it says it should work

How long are you waiting? Try leaving it overnight, if you haven't already. Also try unplugging all unnecessary hardware before trying to install.
