I was looking at msconfig and have noticed that there a lot of Sony services running on my Sony Vaio laptop. I have a feeling that a few of them are not necessary. Can someone help me clean up my running programs and startup programs list? Thanks

Hi, I can at least get you started! Download the Hijackthis.exe program and do what it says:

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save Hijackthis.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
  • At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit EDIT then SELECT ALL then click EDIT and then click COPY, doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
  • Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
  • At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit EDIT then PASTE
  • You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
  • Hijackthis also has some other features besides making the log....
    Use the Config button on the main screen, and then hit the Misc Tools button, in that list you should see a checkbox to check so it makes a Startup List which you copy and paste into your next reply, it may be a good idea to also post a Hijackthis log file for a quick look, you would be surprised how often those users who swear they do not have any malware are totally wrong....

Then, check often for replies, you should get a notification by email for any reply made here, good luck!

Hi, Since you have a SONY product, and seem to work with a lot of media, I wonder if you are aware of the SONY situation about this:

http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2005/11/sonys_drm_rootk.html

http://www.sysinternals.com/blog/2005/10/sony-rootkits-and-digital-rights.html

That was the original information about it, here is updated:

http://www.sysinternals.com/blog/2005/11/more-on-sony-dangerous-decloaking.html

If you have played any newer Sony BMG Cds, you may have that rootkit and it's vulnerabilities!

This below is a MUST READ!
http://forum.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=si_virus&message.id=46924

Especially go to this link at the above site:

http://netscape.com.com/4520-3513_7-6388181.html?part=netscape&subj=edfeat&tag=Security%20Watch:%20To%20be%20"0wned"%20by%20Sony
I will leave the decisions about that info to you.

As far as the HJT log I see nothing worse than WeatherBug, you may keep that, it's adware based but not that harmful....

I cannot help you with the SONY startup items, much as I would like to, and a lot depends on what you find if you look for the Rootkit discussed above. Note that the offered removal utility is not effective...I am looking for a correct method for you in case you find that this Rootkit is present and I will post it.

EDIT: The Microsoft Antispyware program detects and removes it according to this:

http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx

It says: """Also, for those of you wondering, yes, after you update your signatures, the Windows AntiSpyware beta will be able to detect and remove the rootkit that was installed by the Sony DRM software.

i have done msconfig tweaks on a lot of laptops (i do it at the store, the ones on display)

the sony services are completely useless

you can disable them

PS if you ever have any problems with it, just check them again simple as that
