Every time I start up my laptop, which uses XP, something called Sonic Update Manager pop ups and attempts to install something. It doesn't work and tells me "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-Rom or other removable disk that is unavailable. Instert the 'Sonic Update Manager' disk and click ok" It allows me to brose or use source: 1.

I have no idea what sonic is. I think its a program that burns cds? If that is the case Dell installed it and they didn't even give me the windows XP disc let alone this one. Could this be malware? Any insight would be helpful. Thank you.

If there is a recovery partition (local disc D) then that's where you need to direct it at the browse option

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up, look through the list for the update manager, remove the tick, click apply, reboot

Easycleaner www.personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm which made it easy to identify all Sonic components and remove them.
