yesterday I tried to open Sonic Digital Media, but instead I got this message:

"Windows can't access this unit, path or file. Perhaps you don't have the rights to access this object."

Above this is the path: C:\Programfiler\Fellesfiler\Sonic Shared\Sonic Sentral\Main\Mediahub.exe

(Programfiler=programfiles, fellesfiler=common files)

I run Windows XP Home SP2, and according to Kaspersky WebScan I've got build 2600.

I've tried to follow the path manually, but when I double click the Mediahub.exe the same window pops up.

I can't remember when I used Sonic last time, so I don't know what may havce caused this problem. However I have run some new programs latley. ComboFix, Kaspersky WebScan and Ace Utilites's shredder function (But I'm sure I haven't shredded Sonic, just a couple of mp3s and avi files to test it). And I've downloaded a Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications update I haven't instaled.
This is all the programs I can think of.

I've got some problems with a couple of worms/viruses/trojans latley. Could they cause such problems?
Here's the link if you want to look at the problems, which aren't solved yet.

Hope you can help me.

I would try re-installing Sonic Digital Media. However, I would wait until after your virus problems are sorted to do this.

OK, I'll try that, but I think it was preinstaled, so I'll have to contact my PC producer. It may take a couple of days. I can't understand why it woun't work, it can just happen for no reason can it?

Like Budapest said, wait until your malware problem is solved. There are many alternative programs to Sonic's. some free some not

You can go to Dell's site and click Support, Enter you machine # and click "downloads" and get you sonic stuff
