I have the same problem represented in the following post: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...mp;#entry676297 , but the link to the patch to resolve it no longer works. Can someone let me know where this patch is now located?

Basically, when I reboot the Sonic Update Manager starts and apparently attempts to update itself, but it stops with an error message stating that sguard.msi is missing. After a few clicks to retry or cancel, it goes away, but it takes a minute or so of clicking cancel for it to end. I think this is the problem dealt with in the above link, but the solution is no longer available at that link. Please help!

Hi staredecisis,

I believe the Sonic program is trying to update itself.
However, the only way to successfully update, is the purchase an "update" from Sonics website.

When you purchased your PC you found software preinstalled that you did not request, including Sonic. These pieces of software are called Craplets.
The problem is that PC manufacturers won't remove them, because they make money for every machine sold that has these types of software installed.

There is a tool called the PC Decrapifier, that removes those programs that you wish, such as Sonic.

Feel free to visit the Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps, if you need well tested products.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
