and life goes on...
This morning while attempting to do some work on a Dell desktop PC up pops this screen message saying Sonic Activation Module; then it says to insert the Sonic Activation Module Disk and click OK. First I don't even have a Sonic Activation Module Disk and second what is it and how can I make this pop up message go away because it's really starting to annoy me. I went to Control Panel; clicked on add or remove programs in an attempt to locate something labeled Sonic Activation Module or Sonic anything and nothing was there. It's beginning to annoy me. How can I make this go away?
I did and I believe it worked but I have another problem; one which I brought to the boards sometime ago but can't locate the info. Now after I start up this new box pops up; it must have something to do with the network the IT guy set up for me last year.
This box has my user name listed and a password has been entered. I hit OK and nothing happens. At the top of this box in the upper left hand corner it says to connect to a series of numbers; Connect to 192.xxx.x.x then immediately below that are a pair of keys on a keyring.
Then below that are these letters and numbers "WRT54G" which is the model number for the Linksys router here in the house; then it asks for my username which is already typed in; then my password which is already typed in. Then there's a place to check remember my password which is checked.
Finally there's a place to click on OK or Cancel. This obviously has something to do with the wireless network. What can I do to make this stupid box disappear? I can't do any work on this computer without this stupid box popping up every few minutes getting in the way. Where could I go on the web to get an image of what I'm looking at because if I could I'd email it to that IT guy and tell him to tell me how to make it go away; that moron.

Hope this helps.
Well that IT guy in Texas finally sent me an email today about that network box appearing on my monitor's screen. I went to the link you provided; saved a picture of the box that I'm seeing then I emailed and faxed a copy of it to his office which he said he received.
As for a password being placed on this Dell desktop computer he said he didn't set one up and as for that box that I'm seeing he didn't know what I could do to make the thing go away. Duh! Hello! He's suppossedly an IT guy and he doesn't know what the box is or what I can do to make it disappear?
Where should I start? Should I start by calling Linksys; the maker of the router since it appears that the IT moron in Texas who set this all up for me last year isn't going to tell me what I need to know to make the box disappear. Feedback please.
...suggested in the link I provided:
If you're not using the wireless connection, you can disable it on your computer as instructed in the link.
Hope this helps.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
