You may want to increase your virtual memory size higher than what is now. What is the size currently?

1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
3. In the Performance pane, click Settings.
4. In the Performance Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
5. In the Virtual memory pane, click Change.
6. Change the Initial size value and the Maximum size value to a higher value (Probably, 1.5x of your actual RAM size. For eg your ram is 1GB, then set it to 1500MB), click Set, and then click OK.
7. Click OK to close the Performance Options dialog box, and then click OK to close the System Properties dialog box.

There's a article by DELL to help consumer to remove the Sonic Activation Module. Take a look at it.

How much RAM and how much free hard disk does your computer have?

Probably, you might want to go back and put initial file size as 768 and maximum file size also as 768.

You can remove away Windows Installer Cleaner.

Anymore problem now?

I've seen a lot of these issues caused by misbehaving programs also. I'd suggest checking the disk reads to see if any of them appear excessive.

To do this, press Ctrl-Alt-Del to access the Task Manager.
Then click on the Processes tab
Then click on the View menu item
Then select "Select columns"
Then put a check mark in the IO Reads box and click OK
Then look at the running processes to see which is creating the most IO Reads (If you can't see it, grab the right side of the window with your mouse and drag it over to the right some more to reveal it)
You can double click on the IO Reads column header to sort the list by the number of IO Reads
If you find a significantly higher number for any given process, let us know the process name and we'll suggest a fix.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Probably nothing much to do. How do you feel now? Is your PC working great?

Maybe a online scan to finish everything.

Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan.
Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button. And follow the instruction.
