    Default What is software manager?

    What is software manager and how can I uninstall it?
    I noticed that it must find software updates but it doesn't! windows update found some updates for drivers and softwares.

    Does anybody know?

    The attached pictures are when I connected to internet:

    Also the program is not in the add/remove section. The about section of program says:

    Code:
    About the Software Manager
    
    The Software Manager keeps your programs up-to-date with the latest security patches, improvements, and bug fixes. 
    When an update is available, you can: 
    View the updates for your system 
    View update descriptions 
    Download and install updates 
    How does it work?
    
    The update notices include the size of the update, and a description of 
    the update. From this list, choose the updates you wish to install. 
    Clicking on an update listing allows you to learn more about the update, 
    or to remove the update notice.

    this will go away if you remove Vongo from add/remove programs

    Doubt that's it, as I have a clean install of Vista with no Vongo installed, and I also have the Software Manager. Here is a list of my installed programs:

    MacroVision is a licensing vehicle. Unless you know exactly what is utilizing MacroVision's licensing processes, you might have some issues.

    I do not have this installed, but I do see, hidden deep in the installed programs, not under Add/Remove Programs, a MacroVision SafeCast, which I believe Adobe may use.

    In the pictures I uploaded, at the bottom line it says it is macrovision.

    What I found is that it does not find any update (although windows update found for both vista and drivers)!! and also it may only is for digital persona software.

    I am looking for a way to uninstall it.
