I recently downloaded music from walmart.com, which required me to install their downloading app. which was fine. However, as part of the install it loaded a program called Software Manager by some company called MacroVision Corporation. It seems to be a program that seeks to notify and download updates, however, everytime my Norton Virus considers it's get file script malicious, and it pops up everytime I connect to the web. Since I rely on Microsoft's updates software, I want to remove this "Software Manager"

I have uninstalled the Walmart app. in hopes that is would uninstall the Software Manager. But it is still there annoying me. It's not listed in the remove hardware area of the Control panel. So I'm hoping you guys can tell me how to remove this software from my adored laptop.

Thanks!

Since you already have the Software Manager installed, ignore the first download link on this page.

Click the second download link lower down the page, entitled "Download the Update Manager uninstaller"

Save to your Desktop then run it.
