Can you find a program called sonic on your add/remove list?
To check, click on Start, then Control Panel and then Add/Remove Programs. Look at the list and see if there is such a program, if so, uninstall it.

See if there is a Sonic anything in the Startup tab of msconfig (Start / Run, type msconfig and press Enter). Disable it if there.

Also on the Services tab, check the Hide all Microsoft Services box then disable Sonic anything.

Post back with results please.

Sonic is CD/DVD burning software so you don't want to uninstall it.

alokotos, does your thanks mean you fixed it? If so can you post what worked for you here so others may benefit from it?

Thanks,

Ztrucker - I want to thank you for this post. I've been suffering with this for nearly a year and finally decided to get online tonight and just see if there was any information about what this crazy Sonic Update manager was. You've answered my question - burning software. O.k., so now I can attempt to follow your above guidance and see if I can at least disable this. Thanks :-)

Ztrucker - just so you'll know the outcome of my attempt at disabling the Sonic Update Manager. I was totally unable to locate it via your guidance above. Given that I now know (from your information) what this software is used for and the fact that I honestly NEVER use it - I have elected to uninstall it. From my perspective this was the easiest solve - again, I don't ever use it and it's beyond annoying going through 6 cancel events each and every time I reboot (or turn on) my computer. Again, my many thanks. Ms. Anne :-)
