This is a post from another, more generalized 'tech' board I frequent: "Does anyone know what Powered by Sonic really is? The info I've found so far says that it's a password protection software. The reason that I'm asking is that I keep getting this alert pop-up asking me to veiw their updates. If you click yes it takes you to this firehunt site that is nothing but a bunch of ads. It's getting annoying! Everytime I start my comp I get that message about a minute later. If anyone knows how to stop this or whether or not I can delete sonic form add/remove programs without hurting anything, PLEASE, let me know." I've tried searching for both 'Powered by Sonic' and 'firehunt' but found nothing useful. Does anyone here have anything to offer or suggest? It's already been suggested to him that he run HJT and post a log (either there or here), but he seems 'resistant' to that. At this point, I'd settle for any info. Thanks.
