Every time I start my computer the following is displayed 'Sonic Activation Module' which refers to a CD-ROM or other removable disk. How do I get rid of this

Does your computer stop at that point, or can you boot into W7,

Please:
run this forum's sys info utility; paste the results in a reply at this thread
http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links

Which brand model & model # computer have you?
Which brand model & model # motherboard in your computer; cpu, ram, power supply, hard disk drive [ HDD ], optical drive [ CD, DVD, Blue Ray, other ]?

When did the problem begin? Sometimes the exact date is important.

What changed? A hardware or software install or removal; update to W7 [ check the update history ], a program [ anti malware or other ]?

At what point during the startup [ boot ] process does this msg appear? As soon as you 1st turn on your computer, what's the first thing displayed? What's the next thing? Continue with a description until the W7 log in screen or the Desktop appear, or the boot process stops.
