Restarting OK, I have posted this before. But my problem is not resolved and I am frusterated.

And now everytime you exit if after making changes, it always remembers you choice of "Restart".
To get that option back, try this

Sonic activation comes on everytime i start up the computer, can you help me to get rid of this problem.


You can avoid this prompt by shutting the activation service down.

Click Start
Run
type msconfig and then hit enter
on the startup tab, locate Sonic in the list and uncheck it
apply changes and restart
upon restarting a prompt will open saying you have made changes
click OK

NOTE: If this is Windows Vista, you will just type msconfig in the Start Search box from the Windows Bubble or Start Menu.

Please let me know if this resolves your issue. If not, I will be more than happy to assist further.
