So I've been dealing with having to look at the VCast Media Manager in my system tray for too long, so today, I decided to attack the problem. What I tried to no avail using Windows XP:
- Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs (was not listed)
- msconfig - Now, although this does remove it from the system tray, it doesn't really get rid of it; you're just booting with a Selective Startup (which I have a problem with for some reason, OCD?).
Anyway, here's what I did:
Since the program isn't really configured (installed) I decided to simply remove the program from it's current directory (delete it). I apologize for not noting the exact directory but I believe it was somewhere in C:\Program Files\HTC\ModeSelection\VMMModeSelection.exe. This might be different depending on your device. Better yet, search your C: drive for VMMModeSelection.exe and delete the entire directory.
This stops it from running at startup but doesn't get rid of it in msconfig, so run a registry cleaner (I used CCleaner) and you're done.
Hope it helps someone else out there that prefers not to run a Selective Startup.
