How to kill a process after reboot ?

I have an application " Roxio Easy CD and DVD Creator 6" After installing the MSI it needs to have a reboot. After Reboot the system I get a promt for Roxio Assistant all the time when ever I reboot my PC. I want to kill that RoxioAssistant.exe Process so that it does not promt me for a reboot every time I log on to the system.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't packaged it myself but I know that Roxio Easy CD is notoriously difficult to package. Search the message boards for Roxio, I'm sure there is a long thread on Roxio. Also check the Package Knowledge Base here on AppDeploy.

ya Its a hard one to package.
I had followed the process as specified in the appdeploy. Every thing works but it pop-up the reboot for the Roxio assistant.

but still after every reboot the Roxio Assistant pops-up to reboot.

I'm guessing that roxioassistant.exe is something important that you want running, maybe a system tray item, except that it prompts for a reboot? I'd try taking roxioassistant.exe out of the startup process and launch it manually with filemon/regmon running. Maybe it isn't finding something so it prompts for a reboot? Might be worth a try.

Hi Guys,

Did you already checked the registry entry under >>>

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

It might solve your problem.. [;)]

There are no registries in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
I had moved them into
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Once]

I think there is one roxioassistant in
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

may be I need to move those keys into Runonce and see.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
