    Smile [USEFUL) How To Uninstall Roxio Media From Desktop Manager

    And also, HOW NOT TO INSTALL ROXIO, when installing Desktop Manager.

    OK, using the source that you got the software from. (Download or Disk)
    Unzip or boot up your software. After the file unzips or is ready to install, you need to choose "Modify" installation, on an existing install or on NEW install click "Custom". Now the screen will be just like the one that you saw when you installed the software the 1st time. Hit "Next" at the bottom of the dialog box. On the next screen you will be able to "unselect "Media Manager". The install will be done w/o Roxio. And your computer WILL RUN FASTER.

    If anyone find's out anything else, feel free to edit. Thanks

    Apparently RIM got sufficient feedback about the overbloated, system hogging, takes an hour to download from RIM's incredibly slow servers because it's so huge, Roxio Media Manager to develop versions of Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 without any Media Manager, which you can download here.

    Now if we could just convince them to put back the old, slow, yes somewhat lame, Media Manager, that would be just perfect!

    OK, before people start flaming about why bring back the old Media Manager?

    Because end users still may need the nicety of a front end to move files to their BlackBerry. Also, without any Media Manager, you have no access to the Device's memory.

    In a business environment, you do NOT want to be installing Roxio on end user's machines! Especially if you're unfortunate enough to be in an environment migrating to Vista (don't get me started...!!!).

    I agree. And I did see the somewhat smaller download, lol, 68 MB verses 168 MB or whatever that RoxiSuck app was.
