    I can't figure out HOW to uninstall Sonic's Backup MyPc, it was installed
    apparently automatically by installing Roxio Easy Media Creator 8.
    Roxio/Sonics knowledge base & support is not helpful. Same with searching of
    assorted forums related to Sonic/roxio and other forums/web. Anyone know how
    to get rid of this program? I've never used it/never will, I didn't even
    know I HAD it on this machine until it showed up as needing to be
    uninstalled. OR will the install of Vista Ultimate be successful even if I
    DON"T uninstall it.

    Uninstall all of Roxio then reinstall it once the upgrade is finished. Pick
    a custom install and don't install Backup MyPC.

    Thanks for the advice, but uninstalling Roxio does not get rid of Backup
    MyPc...

    Then you'll have to wait until Roxio comes up with a way to uninstall it. A
    quick search shows many people with this problem and no answers other than
    completely uninstalling Roxio usually but not always uninstalls Backup MyPC.
    My recommendation would be to do a clean install of Vista then reinstall
    your programs and restore your data from a backup. If you don't want to go
    this way then make sure you have a good verified backup and you know how to
    restore it before attempting the upgrade.
