Product(s) Affected:

  • BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows
  • BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 5.0 to 5.0.1
  • Roxio® Media Manager for BlackBerry® smartphones

Each time the computer restarts, the Windows Installer prepares to install Roxio® Media Manager for BlackBerry® smartphones.


This is caused by an incomplete installation of BlackBerry® Desktop Manager 5.0 to 5.0.1.


To resolve this issue, complete the following steps:

  1. Complete a selective services startup of the Windows OS ( Start > Run > type msconfig).
  2. Click the Services tab. Clear all non-Microsoft Corporation services check boxes.
  3. Restart the computer.
  4. Remove the BlackBerry® Desktop Software. For instructions, see KB02206.
  5. Complete the opposite of steps 1 and 2 by re-checking all services in msconfig ( Start > Run > type msconfig > Services tab).
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. Reinstall the BlackBerry Desktop Software.
