What Is Sonic Update Manager – How Do I Uninstall Sonic Update Manager?

on October 10th, 2011 | 5 Comments

sonic-update-manager1My sister recently bought a Dell Inspiron 600M. It came with a variety of software already installed when she received it. Now, whenever she boots up or opens the SONIC Digital Media LE v7 software, the Sonic Update Manager opens and tries to ”update” the software. She interrupted the Sonic DL update manager when it started an automatic updating. After that, whenever I start her computer it pops up:
To close it temporarily I keep Xing out and eventually it stops until I turn my computer back on.
The pop ups say:
Please wait while windows configures Sonic Update Manager the other windows that pop up
The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-room or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the Sonic disk then click okay.
3. An installation package for the Sonic Update Manager cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package “UM.MSI”
Sonic came with my computer (DELL) running Windows XP

How can you complete the update or just delete the Sonic Update Manager that is making this pop?
What is causing this? Is it a virus? Do you have run the anti-virus software and the problem persists? Or can you control the update manager and specify that you don’t want it to try and update? If you cannot delete this Sonic Update Manager from the start up, every time you log on, it pops up and won’t go away until your language becomes embarrassing! There is a magic seek and destroy method to eliminate this daily frustration even though you don’t have the CD-ROM that they say is needed to activate this action.

The technical walk-through on how to fix a pesky little problem that is caused by this Sonic Update Manager is to learn it first. Sonic Update Manager is not even a full software application. It’s a secondary application or service that runs with the Sonic Record Now software. Sonic Record Now lets you create CDs and DVDs.

If you notice that every time you start up your computer, you get a wonderful message from Sonic Update Manager to enter the Sonic CD, which you don’t have since Dell didn’t give it to you and then pressing Cancel only seems to infuriate the software more because it keeps popping up over and over again, there are a couple of ways you can fix the problems associated with Sonic Update Manager.

The first and the simplest, if possible, is to simply go into the Control Panel. If you’re lucky it might be there. If so, you can simply click Remove to get rid of Sonic Update Manager But that is not always the case. Hence, the most effective way is to forcibly remove Sonic Update Manager with a Perfect Uninstaller.


The Perfect Uninstaller is able to clean up the Windows Installer files in Windows as that may have gotten corrupted and therefore caused all kinds of random pop ups asking for CDs, etc. You should hopefully be able to uninstall Shield Deluxe with a combination of any of the above steps!
