Do you know what "Sonic" is?

I Goggled Sonic and one hit is CD Burning software.

If this is what you are using, they are asking for the Registered User activation. If you have not paid for Sonic, you don't have it. Either buy Sonic or uninstall it.

Wrong Advise ... Where's the Dell Experts ????
This should be the first thing you do when you get the computer.

The reason I'm asking ... Sonic probably came with the Dell.
If so .. You should be able to recover/re-install the Sonic app from your Dell Recovery partition...
If you remove too much.

A Dell Expert should be along shortly.
Till then see if you can find the tool to make your Recovery CD/DVDs.

Mines in > All Programs > PC Help & Tools > HP PC Recovery CD-DVD creator.
But I have a HP .. not a Dell.

Hey. I have the same problem. And my computer is Dell too.

This has been driving me nuts. I have restored my computer to a previous point, but then everything screwed up. I have looked everywhere to find a file for Sonic Activation Module, nothing there.

The file simply doesn't exist. There is no evidence of a file on my computer, and I did not uninstall it, when i didn't even know it existed!

I need it gone! This thing keeps popping up every time i log on!

You can always try and use 'Process Explorer' to find out information about it and check the directory its installed to for an uninstaller.

I have a Dell E310. When it was new, Dell tech support told me to close everything that runs at statup except my security suite. It worked also.
