Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

A pop up.refuses to be deleated its called (sonic update manager) It has not been asked for & messes up logging in & logging out.

Answers :

This pop up is because Sonic update Manager is running in the background. If you don't use Sonic then uninstall it else if you want to keep Sonic but get rid of this pop-up then
click on start --> Run --> type msconfig in the run box
Go to Services tab and first check the bottom check box that says "Hide all Microsoft services" then go through the list and see if you can find anything that matches the description of Sonic update Manager and uncheck it.
Click on the Startup tab and uncheck the items that match the sonic description.
Apply the changes and the computer would ask you to reboot to apply the changes, reboot the computer.

Let me know if you still face issues after that.

System Password I have managed to completely lock my computer and it is asking for a system password, which I do not have and never have had. Can I find this password somewhere in my manuals, or on the laptop itself ?
