I don't understand what the big fuss is. I actually do like Sonic and I like keeping it. I have an Inspiron and have the same problem described here. I went to the Sonice site, downloaded a hotfix, ran it, and it was taken care of. 5 mins max. Never have the same problem again. Sometimes when the finger is a little sore there is no need to cut it off. If you actually don't care for the Sonic software I suppose you did the right thing.
I had this problem after uninstalling another bundle of software which came with my Dell Inspiron. It looks like I must have deleted some shared files. There is a hotfix here
