When I boot up my computer, I get the message RoxMMTrayApp has stopped working.  I can close the program or debug.  I close the program and my system seems to work fine.  But I would just as soon not have that error.  Can anyone tell me what this is and where I can find it?  I do have Roxio Easy Media Creator but I don't know if this fact has anything to do with the problem.  This computer runs Windows Vista 32-bit Ultimate.

Yes, Roxio is the problem here. It installs an unusually high amount of background processes.

Try using Msconfig > Startup tab to search for RoxMMTrayApp, then untick the checkbox next to it, save and reboot.

This answer is partially right.  It turns out the culprit is a Roxio program called WatchTray9.  In Windows Vista, if you go to msconfig.exe Startup tab, this is listed as CommonSDK and the vendor is Sonic Solutions.  When I unticked this, the problem went away.  I think in XP it is listed in msconfig as Roxwatchtray9 or something along those lines.
