Sonic Activation Module Disk?

by Big Steve / July 8, 2007 6:07 AM PDT

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.

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.
