    Media Manager Software Help


    Every time I try starting up the Media Manager software a process called "Agent.exe" shows up in my task manager. The software remains non-responsive until I end that process. Sometimes the "Please wait while windows sets up Media Manger 9" shows up and I have no idea why, its already installed!

    So, what I'd like to know is how to I get rid of this?

This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

    One forum posted the following information and a link to aid in uninstalling/reinstalling the agent:
