Solved: Sonic Activation Module on startup
I think this is the right thread, I jsut got a new computer and at startup this error thin happens every time, I have deleted it on add/remove programs and it just comes back every time. Its not a threat to my computer, but its annoying and i have to Ctrl Alt Del it every time. Any input on how I can remove this for good? Btw I don't have the CD it was pre- Installed from the factory, and im not even sure what it is, heres the pictures



After I hit Ok this error comes up and it just does the same thing over again


Any suggestions?

Did you also delete the folder in Program files? And check in msconfig/start up button and uncheck anything still running in there for Sonic.

To get to msconfig, go to Start then Run. Type in msconfig and click ok. Then select the Start up tab. You'll have to restart your computer for changes to take affect.

This isn't an answer to your question - just curious - what Visual Style are you using on your desktop - very nice for a darker one.

I have been having this same irritating problem. So I did some research and there was a suggestion to download the Update manager from install shield. It must have been missing on my computer. Once I downloaded it theses messages completely disappeared. You can download if for free at http://www.consumer.installshield.co...sp?id+=Q111006
